Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2To show that c is true, find the length of each segment and show that one is twice the other. Use the distance formula.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so wait.. the length of JK and FG?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes. Because the problem says to show that JK is half of FG.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got 10 as the length for jk can yu try it and tell me if its right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I believe you forgot to take the square root. I got sqrt10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I would just leave it sqrt10 and then find FG. I bet it will turn out to be 2sqrt10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Did you remember to take the square root?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\sqrt{40}=\sqrt{4(10)}=2\sqrt{10}\]
