A man went to visit his friend in the hospital. He got 500 meters from his front door before he remembered that he wanted some flowers. He went back to the flower shop and continued to the hospital. The flower shop is on a straight line between his house and the hospital, 800 meters from the hospital. Afterward, the man walked straight home, on the same road.
How many total meters did he walk between leaving home and returning?
Try drawing a diagram of the entire route to the hospital via the shop and back home.
The red line is the first 500 meters the man walked from home. The blue line is the return journey from the flower shop to the hospital, 2 x 800 = 1600 meters. The dotted lines show the original journey to the shop and the journey from the shop back home, which in total must be the same distance as the first 500 meters. So the total distance is 2600 meters.
