Jose's scribepost for January 5th, 2010

QUESTION NUMBER 10 FOUND ON PAGE 104 :

What is the minimum distance the player
at third base has to throw the ball to get
the runner out at first base? Express
your
answer to the nearest tenth of a meter.

Since 3rd base has to get the ball to 1st b
ase, I figured out the triangle that it makes and it looks like :

After, I figured out the steps to finding the answer :

a² + b²
=

27² + 27² =
( 27 x 27 ) + (27 x 27 ) = c²
729 + 729 = c²
√1458 = c²
38.2 = c²

Then I put it in the missing space : The distance thrown was 38.2 M.

I liek your pictures. I also like that you bolded some important parts of the question, but maybe you should also bold important parts of the equation?

JOSE841 said...

bold parts of the equation? what do u mean yo.

Harvey841 said...

Like, bold/dif color the numbers or something cause they're more important than the letters I guess?

Josh, great scribe. It was very neat, but for the last picture, I am not sure if it is just me, but the answer "38.2 M" is hard to read because it is in yellow. But thats from my point of view. Good job and keep up the good work my friend.
