Peter decided that he wanted to go to the ice cream shop so he started from home and rode his bike down First Street for 4 miles and then took a right turn and traveled due east for another 3 miles. If he was able to take a short cut and bike from home directly to the ice cream shop, how many miles less would he have ridden?

Answer: 5 miles

Maria drove a car 3,257.5 miles on a trip from Miami, Florida to Portland, Oregon. What was the odometer reading before the trip began if the reading after the trip was 27, 329?
