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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if you plug 3 in for a and b in the first one, you get a=sqrt(18)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you use that number and 6 in the next equation to find AC which is 7.35

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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 .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i used the pytagorean theorem once with 3 and 3 for a and b, and again with sqrt(18) and 6 to get 7.35

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is 7.35?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so it would be 4.24^2 +6 ^2 =59.9776 so 7.35 is the square root

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah that's correct, sorry i wish i could explain it better! just you have to use the Pythagorean theorem twice. Yup thats right!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But is says round to nearest inch would it be 7.3?
