    Question: points x, y ,z are collinear such that d(x,y )=17 , d(y,z)=8 , find d(x,z).

    Solution:-

    Possiblity 1

    X-Y-Z

    d(X,Z)= d(X,Y)+d(Y,Z)

    d(X,Z)=17+8

    Therefore, d(X,Z)= 25 units

    Possiblity 2

    Y-X-Z

    d(Y,Z)=d(Y,X)+d(X,Z)

    8=17+d(X,Z)

    8-17= d (X,Z)

    d(X,Z)= -9

    As , distance never comes in negative

    Therefore , d(X,Z) = -9 units is not possible

    Possiblity 3

    Y-Z-X

    d(Y,X)=d(Y,Z)+d(Z,X)

    17=8+d(X,Z)

    17-8=d(X,Z)

    9=d(X,Z)

    Therefore , d(X,Z)=9 units.
