Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2They walk 3 miles north and then 5 miles west This forms a right triangle with legs of 5 and 3 The distance they would walk back to the ranger station is the hypotenuse of that triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hypotenuse^2 = 5^2 + 3^2 hypotenuse^2 = 25 + 9 hypotenuse^2 = 34 hypotenuse = sq root (34)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I think the person who made up that problem might have been a little confused. If they walked 3 miles north and then 4 miles west the hypotenuse would then equal 5 miles exactly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I guess 5.8 is close to the nearest tenth, so that's the answer.
