Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1distance formula ?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, but for that u need to figure out coordinates of points and plug them in the formula... which is a pain... and u need to do it for 5 times... since u have 5 sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there is a simpler way to do this, which uses the distance formula in disguise...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whats the simpler way ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2use pythagorean theorem : that red side = \(\sqrt{2^2+6^2} = \sqrt{40}\)

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this is exact same as distance formula, but this is felt simple because, you're not plugging in the coordinates... instead you're just counting the number of grids...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how did u solve that ^ ... like how did u get 40 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the goal is to find the length of all sides and add up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2did u get how I got : red side = \(\sqrt{2^2+6^2} \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i know how u got the 2 and the 6... just not the 40 ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oh cool :) ive just skipped a step : red side = \(\sqrt{2^2+6^2} = \sqrt{4+36} = ?\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for pt it would be 4^2 + 10^2

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes ! dont forget the sqrt

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(PT^2 = 4^2 + 10^2\) \(PT = \sqrt{4^2 + 10^2} = \sqrt{116}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right... lol and then the last side is sqrt 61 ?

Gabylovesyou

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do i add them all ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yup ! perimeter = length around a shape = sum of all sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(\large \sqrt{a} + \sqrt{b} + \sqrt{c} ~ \ne ~ \sqrt{a + b+ c}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You got : \(QP = \sqrt{40}\) \(PT = \sqrt{116}\) \(TS = 7\) \(SR = \sqrt{50}\) \(RQ = \sqrt{61}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2plug each sqrt in ur calcualtor and add them all

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(QP = \sqrt{40} = \color{red}{6.32}\) \(PT = \sqrt{116} = \color{red}{10.77}\) \(TS = 7 = \color{red}{7}\) \(SR = \sqrt{50} = \color{red}{7.07}\) \(RQ = \sqrt{61} = \color{red}{7.81}\)  perimeter = \(\color{Red}{?}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wolfram says the same : http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=sqrt%2840%29+%2B+sqrt%28116%29+%2B+7+%2B+sqrt%2850%29+%2B+sqrt%2861%29

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so should i put 39 ?

Gabylovesyou

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or try it the long way to double check

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2rounding it becomes : \(38.97 \approx 39\)

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Nope, both are one and same... you may try for practice if u want maybe :)
