    Answer:

    The answer is √58 = 7.62

    Step-by-step explanation:

    So, if you draw this down, you will see that the direct distance is hypotenuse c of a right triangle which sides are 3 blocks (1 south and 2 north) and 7 blocks (4 west and 3 east).

    Use the Pythagorean theorem:

    c² = a² + b²

    a = 3

    b = 7

    c² = 3² + 7²

    c² = 9 + 49

    c² = 58

    c = √58

    c = 7.62
