CORRECT ANSWER
765
EDDIE SAYS
First find that the distance between Paris and Rome is 1106 Km. Next find that the distance between Paris and London is 341 Km. Now you need to compare these distances by finding the difference, so you must subtract: 1106km-341km = 765km.

CORRECT ANSWER
Brussels and Paris
EDDIE SAYS
Use the chart to find all three distances first. Then find the distance that is the shortest between the three choices. Brussels and Paris are the two cities closest together because their distance is the shortest at 261km. Well done interpreting this distance chart!
