    Answer:

    10 miles

    Step-by-step explanation:

    If you picture it, it will be a triangle. Let’s have a= to 8 and b= to 6. Now just use Pythagoras so a^2 and b^2 = c^2

    64 + 36 =100

    find the root of a 100 which is 10 so it will be 10 miles

    Answer:

    To find it you need to use hypotenuse.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    So you drive 8 miles and drive east for 6 miles this make like a opposite L

    So you can connect the edges of the L shape with a line (This line is the straight line from your starting point) forming a triangle.

    Then by using a^{2}  + b^{2}  = c^{2}

    It becomes 8^{2}  + 6^{2}  = c^{2}

    And C will be equal to 10 miles.
