do you know how to determine a length when you have two points ?

there are a few ways to do this. but the easiest is just use the distance equation \[distance = \sqrt{(x_{2}  x_{1})^{2} + (y_{2}  y_{1})^{2}}\] the points on the hypotenuse of that triangle are (4, 2) and (5, 3) it looks like so just calculate the distance between those two points

are you in conexus

that's the easy way. the other way is to calculate the lengths of the sides separately just by looking at the picture, the length of the top side is 9 and the length of the left side is 5 9^2 + 5^2 = c^2

i don't know what conexus is but it called graphing data for my work?

no you have to solve for 'c'

do i just put 10.29 though?
 one year ago

binarymimicBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no you'd have to round to the nearest hundredth. it would be 10.30

binarymimicBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
because 10.295... rounds up to 10.30, that's why
