“Sure, I can help. From this hotel it’s nine blocks to the diner; from there it’s five blocks to the library, and then six blocks back here. I guess instead you could come back from the diner to the museum — that’s four blocks — and then seven blocks back here. Or three blocks to the gallery and then eight blocks back here.”
“So the diner’s straight along here?”
“No sir, it’s not straight along one road for any of these trips; I just meant so many edges of blocks. The city’s on a square grid, and all these places are on corners, but, fact is, none of them is on the same street or avenue as any other one.”
How many blocks between the library and the museum, museum and gallery, and gallery and library?
