oh just 8^2 + 15^2 = 64 + 225 = 289 or √17

what happened there

  • lgbasallote
sont you mean 64 + 225 = 289 or 17^2

Oh yeah sory I meant 17^2 Is that no bueno?
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
that's not the length of AC though

Do I use Tan?

\[AC = \sqrt{x^2 + y^2}\]

I don't know what x and y are, though? Unless 8 and 15 are x and y?

oops lol....

sorry that was the distance formula

haha no worries. I'm just glad you're helping :D

\[AC = \sqrt{AB^2 + BC^2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ah! Okay! So, 225+64 = √289? so the length of AC is 17?
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
yup
