Will you give me a minute?

oops error the question is easy use the pythogoread formula c^2=a^2+b^2 white dr is c westerfield is b and blue is a now we plug in. 144= blue^2 + 13^2 ^ that is already squared for you. ^ that is westerfield. Solve for blue. Do you know how?

Okay. Let me try to solve,alright?

so basically 144=a^2+13^2?

How's it wrong?
 one year ago

timo86mBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the longest street is suppose to be the c in the theorem. white dr is sqrt (144)= 12 but westerfield is 13 which is longer.

No, that's how it is on my sheet. That's okay. i can leave it as is.

Good observation, though.

help123please.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so... would it be '144=5^2+13^2'?
 one year ago

timo86mBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
it is wrong either blue is longer. But for sure westerfield is longer.

5^2+13^2=194 nott 144 silly

how did you get 194?
 one year ago

timo86mBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you gave me 194 5^2+13^2 you gave that 25+169=194 You cant solve it until you fix the streets. You need to know the longest street. You cant just pick it. white dr =12 but wester field is 13. 13 should be c or blue but we dont even know what blue is. we can make blue c also to see if it works

Let's make blue C.
 one year ago

timo86mBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
make westerfield c and the numbers work better :) c^2= b^2+b^2 169=144+b^2 ^ wester field 13^2 is given so square it to get 169 ^ white 144 was given and already squared ^ blue now solve :)

144 = a^2+13^2 > a=5^2
 one year ago

timo86mBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no but it did not work out cuzz you said "so... would it be '144=5^2+13^2'?" no 5^2+13^2=25+169 is not 144 what you were actually getting was imaginary result. a 5i. what you did was something like this 144=a^2 +13^2 simplifies to 144=a^2+169 then you subtract 169 from both sides 144169=a^2 25=a^2 then you try to take sqrt of 25 but how? you cant take sqrt of negatives. you can but it is out of your scope. Unless they taught you about imaginaries already.

That was a long reply. LOL.

help123please.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Thanks anyhow. So the final equation would be 169=144+b^2 > b=5?

@timo86m help please

Yes now you just add up the lengths of the streets to see which is longer route.

westerfield and blue =13+5 = 18 blue to white=5+12=17
