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
