- Hmm what was that thing we did in school. . . p theorem... no that's not it
- OH Geez my alarm didn't go off!! And I haven't cleaned my room yet. My mom is going to kill me!!
- Geez Rover what are you barking about ... calm down
- Quick Kiara quick! mom's coming!!
- Ahh that took so long, Now I need to find the fastest way to get to school so I'm not late.....my mom would get me in trouble for that too
- 1 mile
- It's 1 mile to the bank and 1.5 miles from the bank to school.... I wonder how many miles it is to cut through the park... maybe its quicker!
- 1.5 miles
- Ahh what was it? Come on Kiara Look past Kyles cute new hair cut....It's Pythagorean Theorem!!
- I can plug in the distance to the bank for value a and I can plug in the distance from the bank to school for the value of b, then I just solve for c!
- Pythagorean Theorem:a^2 + b^2 = C^2
- 1^2 + 1.5^2 = c^21+2.25 = c^23.25 = c^2sqrt(3.25) = sqrt(c^2)c = 1.8 miles
- a
- b
- c
- 1 mile
- Now I know, thank goodness for math!
- 1.8 miles
- 1.5 miles
- I should cut through the park! it's only 1.8 miles instead of 2.5 miles.
- I should've been doing that all along, It would've saved me from so much walking!
- Yay! I made it
