you make them linear
what do you mean?
could you help e on this? please
find the length of each side of the triangle, either by graphing or using the distance formula then determine whether the triangle satisfies the Pythagorean theorem
i figured out that the triangle is not a right angle
lol your cute
i know you've done this question before with someone else and i understood what you wrote!
Looking at the figure, do any of the angles look close to 90 degrees? maybe
it is not 90º
did you find the slopes ?
what did you get ?
R (3,4) and S (5,5) S (5,5) and T (6,1) R (3,4) and T (6,1)
what is the slope between points R and S ?
yes, and the slope from R to T is -1 so the lines do not form a right angle (if we got -2 slope from R to T it would be a right angle)
to find a point that forms a right triangle, we could adjust point S so the slope from R to S is +1 (the "negative reciprocal" of -1 is - 1/(-1) = -1/-1 = 1 )
or you could move point S from (5,5) to (5,6)
which way is easier?
it's the same work either way. But they ask the question If it is not a right triangle, what changes can be made to make it a right triangle? so you should pick one way and show it makes a right angle (by showing the slopes are negative reciprocals)
but it doesn't make a right triangle
yes, but what changes can be made to make it a right triangle?
oh i stuck on this part
you are done with the first part. The slope from R to S is 1/2 the slope from R to T is -1 1/2 is not the negative reciprocal, so the lines do not form a 90 degree angle.
This is what I have!
ok, that looks good. be sure to also find the slope from R to T
