Help?
The small town of Quincy recently installed a tornado siren in the center of the downtown area. In ideal conditions, the siren can be heard from a distance of 4 miles in every direction. The Pavlov family is thinking of buying a house 2.5 miles east and 3 miles north of the siren. Will they be able to hear the siren if it sounds? Justify your answer.
