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 base, I figured out the triangle that it makes and it looks like :

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

a² + b² = c²

27² + 27² = c²

( 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.

g'job. I like your pictures.

Oh thanks Raquel. hhahaha thats so cool of you for commenting on different classes. I should do that. thx!

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?

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

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

OH, i see what u mean. thanks i11 chang3 th@t n0w

Good job on your scribepost "jose" ;) haha. Since you've been commenting on all of our scribeposts, I decided to check yours out. Nice job by the way. Your answers seem to be correct and nice pictures!

Hey josh,

your scribe was nicely done, and i've spent the 5 minutes trying to see if there is anything wrong with it.and unfortunately i did but dont worry it's just alittle one."38.2 = c²" it should be "38.2c" so yea, good job . (:

^ " 38.2 = c " *

Ohhhh! THANKS ELIJAH so i put the power there for no reason right. thank u for spending at least 10 minutes on my scribe. I WILL FIX THA NOW

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.
