A small rectangular park measures 200 m by 300 m. To the nearest meter, how much shorter is it if you walk along a diagonal to get to the opposite corner than if you walk along two adjacent sides?

100
Diagonal of rectangle= √(w^{2} + h^{2})=√(200^{2} + 300^{2})=360.56 meters=361 meters(Round off)
Distance shorten when travel through diagonal instead of two adjacent side= (200+300)-361=500-361=139 meters. :)
