did u get it?

6. JakeV8

you need to use the distance formula... Maple Station is 3 units to the left and 5 units higher than the Town Center. So the distance formula is: Distance between 2 points = square root ( a^2 + b^2) where "a" and "b" are horizontal and vertical distances... in this problem, "a" and "b" would be 3 and 5, so you use those in the distance formula. $distance = \sqrt{ a^{2} + b^{2} }$

so its 8?

8. JakeV8

no, you have to square "a" and "b", then add, then take the square root.

34?

11. JakeV8

3^2 = 9 5^2 = 25 3^2 + 5^2 = 9 + 25 = 34 Now take the square root of 34...
