Minimum distance across the room!


A room is of height 5 metres, width 5 metres and breadth 5 metres. A bee and a lizard are at one of the corners of the room (where 3 sides meet). What is the minimum distance the bee and the lizard have to travel in order to make it to the diagonally opposite side of the room.

i think 5*(3)^.5

your answer will be true only for the bee,since it can fly.the lizard cannot fly,so it has to cover a minm distance of (50^.5)+5

the correct answer is indeed (50)^0.5+5
« #4 : September 03, 2007, 03:36:44 PM From ksingh»

the corect answer should be sqrt(10*10+5*5)

for bee:sqrt[75]
for lizard:5+sqrt[50]
