meters west of Jenna. How far does Lillian need to throw the ball to get it to Jenna? If
necessary, round to the nearest tenth.
This problem will form a Right angle triangle.
6.4 m and 5.2 m are the adjacent and opposite sides of the triangle while the distance that Lillian needs to throw the ball to get it to Jenna is the hypotenuse of the right angle triangle. Thus;
h = √(6.4² + 5.2²)
h = √68
h = 8.2
