leroysgurl15 2 years ago The Frostburg-Truth bus travels on a straight road from Frostburg Mall to Sojourner Truth Park. The mall is 3 miles west and 4 miles south of the City Center. The park is 3 miles east and 5 miles north of the Center. How far is it from the mall to the park to the nearest tenth of a mile?

I think someone else just posted this question today. Try and check it out.

2. leroysgurl15

ok

I can give you a hint though. First you'll want to sketch all the info you have. In the end, you will usually have a geometry problem to solve.

Please anyone here know the distance between -4 and 5 on the y axis?

5. leroysgurl15

huh

6. Isaiah.Feynman

Never mind I got it.

7. leroysgurl15

ok

Isaiah if you have problems with positive negative operations, it would help to sketch what you have. Since you are doing Cartesian, it'll be even easier.

noticed the distances, to find the "blue line" or hypotenuse, you can use the pythagorean theorem

@wolfe8 Thanks. I quickly remembered absolute values those quickly helped. I'm good.
