Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes a teacher and if i asked her, she would probably think im cheating on the test...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is no direct relationship between graphs and pythagorean theorem. You can draw graphs without pythagoras.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh. Okay. Do you know how to draw a graph from a given equation. (eg: y = 2x )

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. graph is a sketch of a equation. Like the one I gave before. You can represent it through a graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So a graph has 2 axis. We call them X and Y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now, In order to draw our graph . You need 2 things. They are values of x and y. Otherwise you can draw it.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0strangely we have these y and x parts in our equation. So we need to find some of x and y parts in numbers to draw our graph

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hey. Are you following me so far?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, i know how to make a graph but how do you use it on a graph or when making a graph?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how do you use the Pythagorean therom on a graph...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, You can get a distance between 2 points using pythagorean theorem

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is that what you are asking?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. You know that it is difficult to get a distance between two points when you are given coordinates of those points.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The easiest way to go for it, using this pythagorean thearem. let me give you an example

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1439218976248:dw okay. now you want to know the distance of pq

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1439219099674:dw if you know (a) and (b) , You will find distance pq by using pyth.. theorem

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you need to get these (a) and (b) somehow in terms of coordinates of p and q. I will show you how it is done.. look at the coordinate of those again. and consider only x values for now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1439219429465:dw It is clear that these lines are 1 and 4 long. is it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1439219749996:dw now go back to this one. can you guess (a) ?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0think about heights of p and q. and get the difference of p and q

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1439220207256:dw d and c are values of heights. look at coordinates and think about what makes their heights. And it must be y values

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, So if I ask you what is the difference of those points. what would it be?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0difference of heights

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you just subtract 1 from 5 right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. So it is 4 51 =4

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now we know (a) and (b)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep. pq is square root( 3^2 + 4 ^2)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is 25, and get the squre root of 25 is 5
