Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, to begin with, do you know the distance formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay. So set the distance formula up to where it equals \(\sqrt{73}\) Okay?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Then plug in our points (n will be x1) and once you get there, show me :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its the distance formula....there is x1, y1, x2 and y2 that you need to plug in...I'll just show you lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oops....then, square both sides to cancel the sqrts \[(\sqrt73)^2=(\sqrt{((3)(n))^2+((11)(8))^2}~~)^2\] \[73=(3n)^2+(118)^2\] \[73=(3n)^2+(3)^2\] \[73=(3n)^2+9\] You got an idea of what to do next?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[73=(3n)^2+9\] so we have this ^^ and we need to be able to get n isolated. So we need to subtract 9 from both sides and then square root both sides. \[\sqrt{64}=\sqrt{(3n)^2}\] \[8=3n\] \[n+8=3\] \[n=11\]
