Do you know how to figure this out?

Your first step is to find the hypotenuse on the triangle using the distance east as one side and the distance north as the other side. I will use c to represent the length of the hypotenuse. c^2=(5^2)(4^2) Can you solve for c?

c^2=(25)(16) c^2=400 c=sqrt(400) c=?

I can walk you through this @Albert0898 but I can't just give you the answer you have to do some work to here

Sorry, I was afk. c is 20
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
That is a okay and yes c is 20 so now we can make a new triangle the one side being 20 and the other will be the distance up which is 1mile so we can do the same as before by finding the hypotenuse lets call this one d d^2=(20^2)(1^2) d^2=(400)(1) d=?

d = 20
taramgrant0543664
  • taramgrant0543664
Yes that would be right

Wait a second I screwed up the formula c^2=(5^2)+(4^2) c^2=25+16 c^2=41 c=6.4 so d^2=(6.4^2)+(1^2) d=6.4 I'm sorry I really don't know how I managed to forget the plus sign!!!!!!!!!!
