So today in class Mr. H put a question about a wire going from a tree to the roof of a house, and you had to figure out the length of the wire. Here's the question.
How long is the wire that runs from the base of the tree to the roof of the house in the drawing? Round to the nearest hundredth place.
23² + 36² = c²
(23 x 23) + (36 x 36) = c²
484 + 1269 = c²
1780 = c²
√1780 = √c²
42.19 = c
That's really the only thing I have to put in my scribe today.
- We have a test tomorrow.
- Also, do the rectangle homework (as well as this). There will be a scribe from someone else for that one. It is also on the blog.
Have a good night everyone!
