It would be 7 :)

- anonymous

i think its 15

- anonymous

why do you think it is 15?

- anonymous

i added i think

- anonymous

oh i think i see what you did

finding a length of a line segment on a graph is pretty easy as long as it is vertical or horizontal all you have to do is just count each line

- anonymous

there are a total of 7 lines in the line segment understand?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

so is the answer 15 or ...

- anonymous

no it is 7

let me explain it better

- anonymous

kk

- anonymous

oh ok nvm ;)

- anonymous

k

- anonymous

wait lol u want me to or no lmao

- anonymous

u can expalin it

- anonymous

ok so when u look at the x axis

- anonymous

right

- anonymous

what 2 numbers are the starting and ending points?

- anonymous

i dont know lol

- anonymous

1 and 8 look and see

- anonymous

the two dots are the starting and ending points

- anonymous

k

- anonymous

u see where i got 1 and 8?

- anonymous

i see

- anonymous

ok so then you would just do 8 -1 and find that the length is 7 thats the easiest way

- anonymous

got it

- anonymous

you wouldnt do 1 - 8 though cause then that would make a negative number

- anonymous

right

- anonymous

ok next question :P

A line segment is drawn from (4, 1) to (4, 5) on a coordinate grid.
Which answer explains one way that the length of this line segment can be determined?
A.
Subtract 5 – 1
B.
Subtract 5 – 4
C.
Add 5 + 1
D.
Add 5 + 4

- anonymous

so what do u think it is

- anonymous

umm .D U

- anonymous

Its not D because i dont think you would ever add to find the length of a line segment

- anonymous

ohh c i dont know lol

- anonymous

not c i get it

- anonymous

C is also adding lol ok you would need to subtract to find the length so that would leave you with A or B

- anonymous

umm b

- anonymous

And it would be A because the x values are the same so you would subtract the y values which would be 5 - 1 which is 4 and thats your length:)

- anonymous

i will open a new tag k

- anonymous

k
