# How Much Distance From the starting point? If

Raju drives 25 km North and turns left and travels 5 km and reaches point ‘O’. He then turns right and covers another 5 km. Afterwards turns to East and drives 5 km. How much distance he has to travel to go back to the starting point?

- 25 km
- 30 km
- 35 km
- 20 km

**Answer: (2) 30 km**

**Explanation:-**

Raju drives in North direction = 25 km

He turns left means he drives in West direction = 5 km

He reaches point ‘O’

He turns to right means he drive in North direction = 5 km

And he drives in East direction = 5 km

Then, the total distance from staring point = 25 + 5 + 5 + 5

= 40 km

Before he drives in west direction 5 km and in last he drives in East direction 5 km

Then, the actual distance from staring point = 25 – 5 + 5 + 5

= 25 + 5

= 30 km

Hence, the answer is (2) 30 km.
