Make sure you answer the question you're being asked, and not an intermediate step on the way to the answer.

Do you agree thats the final answer?

OpenStudy (kuoministers):

the drawing of x was kinda incorrect because the question asked for the distance between the man and the tree

OpenStudy (kuoministers):

what we found was x so we need to minus 8 from x

OpenStudy (mathstudent55):

x is correct, you just have to do x - 8 for your final answer.
