A German shepherd and an Alaskan Malamute are both headed toward the same fire hydrant. The German Shepherd is 120 feet away from the hydrant and the Alaskan Malamute is 75 feet away from the hydrant. How much closer to the hydrant is the Alaskan Malamute?
45 feet.
25 feet.
75 feet.
195 feet.
Detailed Explanation
To determine how much closer the Alaskan Malamute is to the hydrant compared to the German Shepherd, we need to calculate the difference in their distances from the hydrant.
The German Shepherd is 120 feet away from the hydrant, while the Alaskan Malamute is 75 feet away. To find the difference, we subtract the distance of the Alaskan Malamute from the distance of the German Shepherd:
120 feet - 75 feet = 45 feet
Therefore, the Alaskan Malamute is 45 feet closer to the hydrant compared to the German Shepherd.
