In TaxiCab geometry we have to stick to the streets. We can't drive on buildings. The shortest
distance from point A to point B is always the addition of the legs of the triangles. In this triangle 3
blocks down and 5 blocks to the right, which add up to 8 blocks.

In Euclidian geometry the shortest distance between two points is always a straight line. The path of
the helicopter is the shortest distance in this case which makes which makes
c = 5.83 blocks.

Now that you understand a little about TaxiCab geometry lets have some fun with it.
