It says draw this out to complete the problem but this didnt help me understand either.
Did they give a picture with this with the locations of A, B, C, D, and E?
Nope they told me to draw it out, and just gave me the lengths. I typed exactly what the question said
I guess it doesn't really matter where they are. I just kind of placed them randomly |dw:1440273759221:dw|
A to C by way of B would be AB + BC = 143 + 57 make sense?
Sorry I'm looking it over trying to understand, 1 second
okay do 'by way of' means another road and it will be in the middle ?
so* not do. whoops. sorry
"by way of" basically means passing or going through.
oh okay, thank you! So why didn't you put the point in alphabetized order?
Sorry I'm just staring my Geom class and I will give you medal!
I just kind of started drawing with A and went from there. They gave distances from A to B and from A to D so I knew both B and D had to connect to A. C and E could be anywhere
hmmm okay, so now I need to 'compare' which means?
it says to compare A to C and to compare A to E
Once you have the distances, say whether they're equal, or which one is less or mor
So what do I do from here?- I'm saying. Add the miles ?
yes. Add from A to C. then add from A to E
Which is exactly the same sum. so the sum of these is 200?
yeah, so you'd just say that the distances are equal
Okay!!! THANK YOU so much. means tons. I am just really struggling with this class. thank you sir!
