then find the square root of that answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, it is 24 squared - 8 squared

512
anonymous
  • anonymous
correct, now find the square root of 512
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do i do tht
Astrophysics
  • Astrophysics
\[r^2 = x^2+y^2 \implies x = \sqrt{r^2-y^2} = \sqrt{(24)^2-(8)^2}\]
