    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?

    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.

    it is wrong either blue is longer. But for sure westerfield is longer.

    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

    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

    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 144-169=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.
