## anonymous one year ago right triangle a=3 and b=3 A. what is the value of c written in simplified radical form B. what is the value of c rounded to the nearest hundredth

1. anonymous

are we dealing with Pythagorean theorem?

2. anonymous

Hello @dog1234?

3. anonymous

I'm assuming that it is seeing now that its a triangle, sorry!!

4. anonymous

can you see what I am typing now okay

5. anonymous

it is showing me that I am in there now I can see everything you are writing and my math question

6. anonymous

yes my open study wouldn't load but anyways are you aware of what Pythagorean theorem?

7. anonymous

I am in the chat now but am not seeing you there

8. anonymous

what you are not really supposed to be in the chat? if you want help on this question, just type here for now k. do you know what the Pythagorean theorem is?

9. anonymous

a^2 + b^ =C

10. anonymous

yes!! so if a=3 and b=3 then what is the new equation?

11. anonymous

I know that he hypothese is the longest side

12. anonymous

hold on gtg ill be back in a lash dont freak if u see i leave this question k?

13. anonymous

I came up with 9^2 + 9^2 =162

14. anonymous

I just am not sure if I am doing this right nor how to write this in a radical equation simplified.

15. anonymous

im back, lol and well yes and no??? the equation would just be replacing for now k

16. anonymous

so a would be replaced by what

17. anonymous

I think a 9

18. anonymous

or 81

19. anonymous

uhm no... it said a=3 in the beginning so what would a=

20. anonymous

3

21. anonymous

yes and if it said b=3 in the begining then b=3 as well so you have a new equation!! 3^2+3^2=c^2 got it?

22. anonymous

Yes but is that radical form simplified

23. anonymous

no no you do that at the end!!

24. anonymous

now would I write 9^2 +9^2 =81

25. anonymous

i mean 162

26. anonymous

no... you would now begin to break it down like an equation

27. anonymous

like this... 3*3=what?

28. anonymous

|dw:1443457358405:dw|

29. anonymous

9

30. anonymous

no think simple k, 3*3=9 so now u have a simplified expression 9+9=c^2 oh wait yes 9 is right sorry!1

31. anonymous

so in other words 18=c^2 got it

32. anonymous

yes so I done 3^2 +3^2 =81

33. anonymous

hold on i caught a mistake, i gonna draw the process for u

34. anonymous

okay

35. anonymous

|dw:1443457746581:dw|

36. anonymous

thats square root of 18!

37. anonymous

what is square root of 18 i mean

38. anonymous

are you sure I not suppose to multiply the 3^2 +3^2

39. anonymous

yep check this site http://www.mathsisfun.com/pythagoras.html

40. anonymous

how do I round it to the nearest hundreth

41. anonymous

well what is the square root of 18? i got 4.24264.....so where is the hundredth place?

42. anonymous

I think it is the four

43. anonymous

would it stay a four or would I round to 400

44. anonymous

18 would equal c

45. anonymous

but the first question is asking for this in simplified rational form so you basically just reduce it by its square root so the 4.24264..... becomes2.05 so problem #1=2.05 as for b which 4 are you saying the 1st one second one or third one?

46. anonymous

oh sorry the third one

47. anonymous

well im confused lol do u mean the third four or the third didgit

48. anonymous

like the 4.24 I think I would round the four the last four

49. anonymous

squared 18 is 2.05

50. anonymous

there is also a minitool phythorem calculator website but it is confusing

51. anonymous

yes!! wait im really confused now are they talking about the original value for c or the rationalized value for c so yes its either 4.24 or 2.05 sense 2.05 is already in the hundredth place?

52. anonymous

on c it is just the answer I think rounded to the nearest hundredth

53. anonymous

so its 4.24

54. anonymous

and 4.24 is already in the hundreth place isn't it should I use the 2.05?

55. anonymous

up in the drawling does 18=2.05 or does it equal c

56. anonymous

no we made 2.24 in the hundredth place!!! so I think that #1-2.05 and #2-2.24 and c=2.05 or 4.24 depending on the question k

57. anonymous

gtg be right back k

58. anonymous

okay

59. anonymous

are you coming back
