Detremine the rectilinear distance, Mathematics

Rectilinear Distance (Total Travel Distance per Day Using Rectilinear Distance):

It can be computed through using following formula:

d(X, Pi) = |x - ai| + |y - bi| (Source: Taylor, 2008).

= {(30-30) + (25-40) + (45-50) + (20-45) + (55-60) + (30-45) + (50-30) + (30-25) + (60-40) + (35-35)}

= (0+15+5+25+5+15+20+5+20+0)

=110

For this, location will be 30 for x axis and 35 for y axis i.e. (30, 35).

Straight Line or Euclidean Distance (Total Travel Distance per Day Using Straight-Line Distance):

It can be calculated by using below formula:
