hi Monox D. I-Fly

I assumed that E is 'above' A, F 'above' B and so on. And then didn't get your answer.

So I tried E 'above' D, F 'above' C and so on. And got a different answer to us both.

So it would seem that the exact diagram is important here.

Your first assumption was right. What answer did you get?

With that arrangement of the letters, BH is a diagonal and AG another. The diagonals cross at 90 degrees and bisect each other, so the distance required is half a diagonal.
