first we begin by finding the length of the diagonal of the bottom rectangle we use Pythagoras again that diagonal is a hypethenus if you can see it

ok
so heypethenus = sqrt{3^2+4^2}=sqrt{9+16}=sqrt{25}=5 inch
now we look at the triangle from by the the metal rod we have the long side is 11 inch and the short one we just found is 5 the rod is like a hypotenuse in that triangle so the length of the rod = sqrt{5^2+11^2}=sqrt{25+121}=sqrt{146}
to the nearest 10th it is 12.08 inch
you got it ?
is that the answer?
wouldn't it be 12.1?
nearest tenth you look at two digits after decimal
did you see the answer choices? It also says tenth if an inch.
i'm sorry it should be one digit after decimal fasting effects haha
so you are correct
so it is 12.1
yes
ok next?
ok go ahead! next i will give some time to do some of it and see where exactly you stuck
is that ok
sure.
ok then post :)
