Storyboard Text

  • Judy the Ostrich's first game at 77 years old
  • Judy wants to know the hypotenuse of her game winning throw to Arthur
  • 20 yards
  • 50 yards
  • 20 squared + 50 squared = c squared
  • A= 20 yards
  • b= 50 yards
  • a squared + b squared = c squared
  • Pythagorean theorem: a squared + b squared = c squared 20 squared = 20 x 20 = 400 50 squared =50 x 50 = 2,500 400 + 2,500 = c squared 2,900 = c squared The closest perfect squares are 2,809 and 2,916 and the square roots are 53 and 54 2,900 is much closer to 2,916 so the hypotenuse is probably 53.8 Hypotenuse = 53.8 yards
  • Judy makes the throw so that it can travel 53.8 yards
  •  20 yards
  • 53.8 yards
  • 50 yards
  • Touchdown fighting cheeseotters!!!!
