Okay you math guys out there, I've got a (seemingly) simple problem that I can't remember how to solve. It's the second day of school, leave me alone :P


What is the length of the blue line labeled r in the image below? Give your answer in terms of a and b.

We are going to need actual numbers if you want an answer in a number. Also Pythagorean theorem.
I'll believe in anything and you'll believe in anything.

The square root of (a^2 + b^2)

He wants his answer in terms of a and b.

It's just a guess but r= the square root of a^2+b^2

If a and b are the dotted lines, then a squared plus b squared equals c (in this case, r) squared. Pythagorean theorem.

Otherwise I'm not sure what you're asking.

r = long

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

well you know the b side is of a lentgth of B and that the side know as ( B, corner of blue line) is of a length of a then only use Pytaghor ( sorry for the errors)

He said in terms of A and B

R(squared) = A(squared) + B(squared)

You can simplify it from there to get R, I'm too lazy.

haha I thought it read "meth help". you should change it and build a meth lab.

TS how old are you because this is really straight forward stuff that I could do when I was about 12 or 13?

Says he's 15 in his profile.

Damn I wish I was getting taught stuff that easy when I was 15

r^2 = a^2 + b^2, or r = the square root of (a^2 + b^2)
#17
Pythag; The square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides; therefore r.squared = a.squared plus b.squared, so = the square root of (a.squared + b.squared).

16 now :P


Like i said, it's the second day of school. My brain isnt exactly...ahem....working quite yet. If it was last year, I would've been on this no problem. Thanks though guys.

Square root of a-square + b-square

TS, you're huge aren't you? Trade you some brain cells for your pecs
