Question 6

6. You are asked to check the design plans for a baseball diamond. Is the triangle a right triangle? Explain.

a² + b² = c²

27² + 27² = 37.1²

(27 x 27) + (27 x 27) = 37.1²

729 + 729 = 37.1 ²

1458 = 37.1 ²

37.1 x 37.1 =1376.41

√1458 = 38.18m

√1376.41= 37.1m

It is not a right triangle because the distance between home and second base is 37.1m and isn't 38.2m.

( I wasn't sure how to show my work , so sorry. )

Good job Michelle ! I noticed that at the bottom of your post, you wrote " i asnt sure how to show my work, so sorry " but i think you showed enough work. I really don't see anything wrong with your post but i think you should add a little colour or something, but other than that you did a pretty good job !
