What is the distance between points E and G? Round to the nearest tenth of a unit

(2) Answers

The distance is 12.041594578792295. Round to 12.0


Use Pythagorean theorem! A^2 + B^2 = C^2 In this case, let's make A = the difference in height, and B= the difference in width. Since you're looking for C, the distance between the two points, plug in the distance of the height and width! (Without worrying about C A = 1-9 = -8 However, you can't have a negative height. So use absolute value to get A= 8 Then find the difference in width B= 7- -2 = 9 Then plug in: A^2 + B^2 = C^2 8^2 + 9^2 = C^2 145 = C^2 This can be confusing, but to get rid of the ^2 on C, you take the sqrt (square root) of both sides C = sqrt (145) Then use calculator 12.041 Round to tenth 12 Hope this helps!
