Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know how to determine a length when you have two points ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that'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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do i just put 10.29 though?

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

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