So do I do 36^2 + 24^2, then square root the solution?
anonymous

Round to the nearest tenth.

  • anonymous
So I got 35.1
anonymous

Or do I round it to 35.2?

No, you don't add them and take the square root. That only works if you have two legs. Plug the numbers into pygathorean's equation.

sorry, I missed something, you are suppose to subtract it

What is that squared?
anonymous
  • anonymous
to find the hypotenuse, you would add them, since you are trying ti find the height, you do the opposite and subtract them.

Also not in a fraction but with decimals.

Sorry I mean round to the nearest tenth.

|dw:1328146639472:dw| Then you square root 720
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes I got 26.8
anonymous
  • anonymous
Is that right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes, you can round it
anonymous
  • anonymous
So I can round it to 27?
anonymous

Sorry for the mistake I did earlier.
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes

  • anonymous
It's ok.

If you would just use pythagorean's theorem and plug in the appropriate numbers there would be no discrepancies. Memorizing that you need to "add this and that and take the square root" or "add this and subtract that and take the square root" will not get you far in mathematics.
