what's the answer
Just give me a few minutes
i'v got it
@TheMind, you sound like you're about to give the answer. Don't do it. Explain it to @waheguru. Help him so that he is able to solve it on his own.
sqroot of (1024+576)=40
hard to do but it's a right angle triangle
It's not difficult to explain. You should at least make an attempt to explain it.
you want to bank the spider off of the side rails in such a manner that they add up to a straight line to the fly
|dw:1346011245866:dw| peel open the room like a box, and go stright for the fly
Yea, i made the wrong shape |dw:1346011341797:dw|
you dont play much pool do you ....
the direct route may be shorter tho, just to beeline across the ceiling, while dodging the can of raid
i was thinking of a fire river and shortest route, but theres no fire here is there
|dw:1346011479460:dw|
am i right>
|dw:1346011563123:dw|
id have to draw it on paper to be sure ....
|dw:1346011639209:dw|
yeah, the shortest distance to the fire is a stright line, but if you have to go get water first .....
Its 40
oh
do you have measurements for that question
|dw:1346011768855:dw|
no, the river fire usually just asks for the point along the river that makes the shortest distance between start and fire
so, the stright line approach gives me 42 feet to run down11, across 30 and up 1 to the fly
yes
any bank shot produces a hypotenuse that is by default, longer than any of the legs, so longer than 42
Yes, the shortest is the one we found 40
40, or 42?
40
i cant see it as 40, what was the method you employed?
We are talking about the spider and the fly one right ?
correct
|dw:1346012153813:dw|
you did not add in the foot away from the walls 24 and 32
oh, and the fly is at the other end of that square, anoter 10 feet
Woops actually the answer to 32 and 24 is 40
No the ordering is right
