Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If in case you want to learn and not to cheat... To calculate for the length, you have to use the distance formula: \(d=\sqrt{(x_2x_1)^2(y_2y_1)^2}\) where (x1, y1) = (2, 5) and (x2, y2)= (9, 5) just plug in the given point into the formula. Welcome to Openstudy :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Take a look at the points: Points (2, 5) and (9, 5) They have the same Y value. That means it is a horozontal line and you can shortcut this by just seeing the difference in X. So from 2 to 9 is how many steps?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The calculation AntiNode works in all cases, but yes, on simple ones where either the X or the Y is the same, it is a horozontal or vertical line and it is that easy. So 7 is it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I hope that helps the explanation as to why this shorcut works when the y value is the same.
