Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.120^2 + 22^2 = x^2 400 + 484 = x^2 x^2 = 884 x = ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x^2 = 884 x = sqrt(884) x = 2*sqrt(221)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so thats your radius

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now you can use this radius to find EF and FN

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1solve for y y^2 + 19^2 = (2*sqrt(221))^2 y^2 + 381 = 884 keep going

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1What do you do after you solve for y? @jim_thompson5910

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I let y = EN so to find EF, you need to find 2y this is because EF = 2*EN EF = 2y

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1also, FN = EN, so once you get EN, you have found FN

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh somehow I had 381...hmm lol yeah it's 361

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y^2=523 y=sqrt(523)

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(2*sqrt(221))^2 = 4*221 = 884

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright so y=29.73?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1leave it in radical form

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1unless it asks about the approximation and rounding it

d_loparsaie

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to leave it in radical form do I just leave it as y=sqrt(523)?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes square roots are considered radicals

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Solving for y solves for both FN and EF..?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1FN yes since FN = EN

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but you have to double it to find EF

d_loparsaie

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So the one we just solved (y) is FN right? and I add FN and EN together.. but how do I do that since its in radical form?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or you can double FN to get EF

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no EF = 2*sqrt(523)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How do I double Fn to get Ef

d_loparsaie

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1___ if 2*sqrt(523) is EF then half of that is Fn and En right..

d_loparsaie

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Alright lol sorry I was confused on which was which. How do I find out what half of the radical is? just divide 523 by 2?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it's just 2*sqrt(523) and sqrt(523)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1EF=2*sqrt(523) and EN and FN = sqrt(523) .. wow haha I feel stupid. Thank you so much though!

d_loparsaie

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to find 2*sqrt(523) as a decimal rounded to the nearest tenth I multiply 523*2 and then take the square root of that number right?

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you first take the square root of 523, then you double that result

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then you round to whatever they want

d_loparsaie

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the answer would be 45.74?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yep 2*sqrt(523) = 45.74 roughly
