4. helpmeplz311

Copied it hest i could

5. helpmeplz311

best*

6. baldymcgee6

|dw:1351043712467:dw| Tell me if this is right.

7. watsgood

Is MK=a^2 =36?

8. helpmeplz311

correct,mcgee

9. baldymcgee6

you need to present your question better next time so we can actually see what is going on :0

10. helpmeplz311

i think so, wats

11. helpmeplz311

sorry

12. helpmeplz311

but i think i need to find b,im not sure

13. helpmeplz311

all thats on my paper is the drawing

14. baldymcgee6

you don't know what you need to find? maybe you need to take better notes too ;)

15. helpmeplz311

ok lol

16. helpmeplz311

it is not listed

17. helpmeplz311

th ere are many problems, youve to find different things

18. helpmeplz311

but since c and a are given

19. helpmeplz311

also, i keep getting NaN

20. baldymcgee6

is the square with side length m, an actual square or is it a rectangle?

21. helpmeplz311

square

22. baldymcgee6

okay, so what do we know about the area of a square?

23. watsgood

is m given as a midpoint?

24. baldymcgee6

hahah, there is no way for me to say.

25. helpmeplz311

um, The area of a square can be found by multiplying the base times itself. This is similar to the area of a rectangle but the base is the same length as the height.

26. baldymcgee6

I'm having a hard time making out this drawing, maybe someone else can provide some insight.

27. helpmeplz311

okay.

28. helpmeplz311

saifoo?

29. saifoo.khan

Saifoo is unavailable.

30. helpmeplz311

*hopeful expression*

31. helpmeplz311

dang

32. watsgood

I am thinking he needed to extend the square to M , then he has a 3:4:5 relationship. Otherwise other assumptions need to be made.

33. helpmeplz311

okay then saifoo

34. saifoo.khan

Is that question in a book? Or the teacher drew it?

35. baldymcgee6

I think we have to assume alot of things with this drawing :)

36. helpmeplz311

watsgood,thats wha t was on my paper

37. saifoo.khan

I think even the drawing is assumed.

38. helpmeplz311

teacher drew ir

39. saifoo.khan

Why not take a photo and post it here?

40. helpmeplz311

it*

41. helpmeplz311

42. baldymcgee6

I can't wait.

43. helpmeplz311

brb then

44. saifoo.khan

BathRoom Break?

45. helpmeplz311

ok it is uploaded to my photobucket

46. helpmeplz311
47. helpmeplz311

@saifoo.khan it is posted on photobucket

48. baldymcgee6

I was WAY off!

49. helpmeplz311

how?

50. helpmeplz311

@baldymcgee6

51. helpmeplz311
52. helpmeplz311

saifoo?

53. saifoo.khan

Me?

54. helpmeplz311

55. helpmeplz311

yes,you:)

56. saifoo.khan

I think we have to find b.

57. helpmeplz311

how? i keep trying on a calculator yet kee getting NaN

58. watsgood

just as I stated a 3;4:5 triangle.

59. helpmeplz311

!

60. watsgood

You don't need a calculator. you need to understand the relationship.

61. helpmeplz311

tripleS?

62. saifoo.khan

@helpmeplz311 , @watsgood is helping!

63. watsgood

a^2=36, what is a?

64. helpmeplz311

6

65. saifoo.khan

Lol. What's the point of being sorry?!

66. helpmeplz311

k then not sorry

67. watsgood

now let's find the hypotenuse.

68. helpmeplz311

:D

69. helpmeplz311

that is given,no? c=10?

70. helpmeplz311

oh! 5!

71. watsgood

yes, its parallel. Now you know the pythagorean theorem.

72. helpmeplz311

o so b is 4?

73. helpmeplz311

er,imean, 2?

74. watsgood

a^2 +b^2= c^2 it's doubled actually.

75. helpmeplz311

oh.

76. helpmeplz311

sq root of each.

77. watsgood

36 + b^2= 100

78. helpmeplz311

? why 100?

79. saifoo.khan

10^2 = 10*10 = 100

80. watsgood

10^2= 100

81. helpmeplz311

ohh

82. helpmeplz311

and b would be?

83. watsgood

100-36= 64= b^2 take the square root of 64, b=8

84. helpmeplz311

oh. would u b so kind as to check the others? i did them

85. helpmeplz311

tnx btw:)

86. helpmeplz311
