Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can't really answer the first two since you only have one point in each part. You need two points to calculate the distance. I can do the third point:\[d=\sqrt{(3(1))^2+(\sqrt{2}\sqrt{2})^2}=\sqrt{4^2+(2\sqrt{2})^2}\]\[=\sqrt{16+8}=\sqrt{24}=2\sqrt{6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In general, if you have two points in the xy plane, such as\[(x_1,y_1)\]and\[(x_2,y_2)\]then the distance between them is\[d=\sqrt{(x_2x_1)^2+(y_2y_2)^2}\]You have to apply this formula each time you want to find the distance.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For your triangle question, you draw up a set of axes and plot each of the three points per triangle. You then find the length of each side by using the distance formula, using the two points that are at the end of the line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Chai, I can't answer your last question either because you don't have a an ordered pair along with the slope. You'd need to have something like (13,5) with slope m=1; you only have 13 and m=1, etc. Sorry...I take it your teacher didn't actually write anything down for you. It's not your fault.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im sorry, i did not notice. ahmm, Hero can you answer about slope problem. problem is (1, 3) m= 1 and (4, 0) m= 2/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All you have to do is plot your point, and then using the definition of the slope (i.e. rise over run) work out another point and plot it. You'll have two points and you can then draw your line. First point: start at (1,3) and since m=1=1/1, for every 1 unit you move across, move up one unit. So you'd have another point at (0,4). Draw a line between these two points. For the second: start at (4,0) and since m=2/3, for every 3 points you move across to the right, move up two points. Your next point would then be at (7,2). Plot this and draw a line between the two points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thankyou hero, hero im finish drwing a triangle of my second problem but i dont know how to solve this using the formula of distance to find the length since they are three. the problem are: a, (2 1) (4, 2) (5, 0) b, (0 3) (3,0) (0 4). can youu help me again to solve?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Chai, you're going to have to find three distances for each triangle. To find each distance, you need to use the two points that are on either end of the side of the triangle you're looking at. For example, in the triangle I've attached, side 'a' will have the points (2,1), (4,2) To find the distance, you have\[a=\sqrt{(42)^2+(2(1))^2}=\sqrt{2^2+3^2}=\sqrt{13}\]You need to repeat the process for the other two sides. If you have difficulty, post the question to someone who will be around now. Post this link http://openstudy.com/updates/4da16b9dd6938b0beb509e4d?source=email#/updates/4da16b9dd6938b0beb509e4d and they should be able to get to this post. Good luck.
