A Popsicle is a square prism with a base edge length of 3 inches. When the Popsicle is frozen a 7 inch stick is frozen inside as the image shows. After frozen, 1 inch of the stick remains outside the Popsicle. What is the length of AC, to the nearest inch?

well i mean, logically, i would think it would be one 6 inches, just because of the way it is worded. But i feel like that's probably not what they're asking you to do, rather, i think they want a Pythagorean theorem problem

so you first have to find the length of a then c

& how do I do that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
do you know how to use the Pythagorean theorem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so if you plug 3 in for a and b in the first one, you get a=sqrt(18)
anonymous
  • anonymous
then you use that number and 6 in the next equation to find AC which is 7.35

I still don't get this sorry I was working on find the area of a rhombus using the Pythagorean theorem but for some reason this doesn't make sense to me .

How did you get 7.35?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i used the pytagorean theorem once with 3 and 3 for a and b, and again with sqrt(18) and 6 to get 7.35
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the answer is 7.35?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so it would be 4.24^2 +6 ^2 =59.9776 so 7.35 is the square root
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah that's correct, sorry i wish i could explain it better! just you have to use the Pythagorean theorem twice. Yup thats right!
anonymous
  • anonymous
But is says round to nearest inch would it be 7.3?
anonymous
  • anonymous
or does it stay 7.35
