 Taxicab geometry 2000-01-16 From Jack:Im doing an investigation entitled 'taxicab geometry', ive attempted it and have done most of the practical part of it. But i cant seem to see the equation behind it all. please guide me in the right direction. They provide a regular grid with regular horizontal and vertical lines. The lines are roads and the actual squares are blocks of hoouses/ buildings. In taxicab geometry the distance between place A & B is worked out by adding together the horizontal and vertical distances. each square is counted as i unit. Part 1 (I've done this) A taxix cab firm is based at A. the posistion B is 7 units away from A. investigate all the posistions of B at 7 units. investigate for different distances. . . .Answered by Penny Nom.
