Introduction As shown in the above picture, Kavitha can reach her school in two ways. Can you tell, by choosing which path she could reach the school early.

Look at the nearby picture In which path the leaf will reach the ground first? Path A

Uma and Priya are friends studying in the same school. After school hours, they go to the nearby playground, play games and return back home. Oneday Uma told that she would reach the playground after visiting her grandmotherŌĆÖs house . The path in which they took reached the playground is shown here. Take a twine and measure the length of the two paths (A & B). Which is the longest path among the two? Path B

From the above examples, we could conclude that when an object travel from one place to another, it will reach faster if it travels along the straight line path. The straight line path is the shortest distance between two points.
