ok

  • xapproachesinfinity
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
xapproachesinfinity
  • xapproachesinfinity
you got it ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
is that the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wouldn't it be 12.1?
xapproachesinfinity
  • xapproachesinfinity
nearest tenth you look at two digits after decimal
anonymous
  • anonymous
did you see the answer choices? It also says tenth if an inch.
xapproachesinfinity
  • xapproachesinfinity
i'm sorry it should be one digit after decimal fasting effects haha
xapproachesinfinity
  • xapproachesinfinity
so you are correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it is 12.1
xapproachesinfinity
  • xapproachesinfinity
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok next?
xapproachesinfinity
  • xapproachesinfinity
ok go ahead! next i will give some time to do some of it and see where exactly you stuck
xapproachesinfinity
  • xapproachesinfinity
is that ok
