    Vondra and Mei are 6 meters apart.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    From the given information, It can be known that :

    • Vondra is directly south of Mei ⇒ which forms the height of the triangle.
    • Vondra is directly west of Yoshi ⇒ which forms the base of the triangle.

    The distance between Vondra and Yoshi are 8 meters which is the base of the triangle. (Base= 8).

    The distance between Yoshi and Mei are 10 meters which is the hypotenuse of the triangle. (hypotenuse= 10).

    To find the distance between Vondra and Mei which is the height of the triangle :

    From the Pythagorean triplets (3,4,5),

    It is determined that the multiples of (3,4,5) = (6,8,10) forms the triangle in this particular case.

    Therefore, the height is 6 meters. That is, the distance between Vondra and Mei is 6 meters.
