Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0distance formula\[5=\sqrt(4b)^2+(107)^2\] that sqrt should be over the whole right side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it would be 5 = 4b + 9?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the (4b) is still square and the right side should still be under the sqrt

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[5=\sqrt((4b)^2+(107)^2)\] \[25=(4b)^2+9\] subtract 9\[16=(4b)^2\] take the squareroot, and remember that when taking the squareroot you have to use the negative and positive\[\pm4=4b\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry! im just a better learning seeing it out solved

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have\[4=4b \] subtract 4 and multiply by 1 to get rid of the negative \[0=b\] and you also have\[4=4b\] subtract 4\[8=b\] and multiply by 1 to get rid of the negative \[8=b\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A(b,b) is sqrt(18) units from its origin.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the origin is at (0,0) so assuming the b is the same you have\[\sqrt18=\sqrt{(b0)^2+(b0)^2}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so\[\sqrt{18}=\sqrt{b^2+b^2}\] \[\sqrt{18}=\sqrt{2b^2}\]square both sides \[18=2b^2\]divide by 2 \[9=b^2\]take the square \[\pm3=b\]root
