Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(6^2  1^1)^2 + (16^2  14^1)^2 (36  1)^2 + (256  14)^2 35^2 + 242^2 1,225 + 58,564 = 59, 789 I think I did it wrong...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not quite: \(\sf \color{red}{\sqrt{(16)^2+(1416)^2}}\) which is approximately 7.28, but rounding to the nearest tenth is 7.
