we are here at the Champions League Final, watching as a deadlock may be broken in the closing minutes of extra time. wait, what is this?! Pogba is in, with Sanchez and Lingard calling for the pass!
Pogba is being pressured, and it looks like whoever he passes to will shoot quickly, since the goalie is off center! Pogba, if he was in a triangle, would be the vertex of the right angle. The distance between Lingard and Sanchez is 10 yards, whereas the distance between Pogba and Lingard is 5 yards. who is the closer, and optimal pass?
25+B squared=100, that was the first step of the equation. then you must subtract 25 from both sides, making the equation B squared=75. from there, you find the square root of B squared, which is B, and the square root of 75 which is, using the way to manually find square root, dividing 75 by 81, and keeping on simplifying until you get the right answer of about 8.67, which is the distance of a pass between Pogba and Sanchez. Therefore the quicker, more likely to score, and less likely to get the ball stripped from them pass, is to Lingard.
I found 8.67 by dividing 75 by the closest square, then finding the average of that perfect square and the answer, and I kept on repeating the steps
the commentators quickly did the math, hoping Pogba was thinking the same way!
Manchester United score against Real Madrid in the champions league final!!! All thanks to the Pythagorean theorem helping in the unlikeliest of times.
