Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm really confused on this entire unit.... Would the horizontal distance be (10,8) ? I thought you'd subtract the two points to find the distance, tell me if I'm wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep since the ratio is 2:1, this means that the horizontal distance from P to B is cut in half dw:1437442904123:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the vertical distance from A to P is 8 units cut that in half to get 4 dw:1437442954668:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The line segment is broken up in such a way that W is twice as long as V W = 2*V dw:1437443158788:dw
