Hello, I am a complete beginner here and I find it extremely difficult to understand the terms that use in the tasks and how does the formula works.

For instance, it says “Call” under the instruction and I find out that it means to write another code of “print” which is confusing for a beginner like me.
Also, there isn’t a guide of how the formula for all three distance formulas. Can anyone please help?
