Question 10

What is the minimum distance the player

at third base has to throw the ball to get

the runner out at first base? Express your

answer to the nearest tenth of a metre

Okay, soo we need to find the hypotenuse

a²+b²=c²

27m²+27m²=c²

729m²+729m²=c²

1458=c²

√1458=√c²

c=38.18m

The shortest distance the 3rd basemen would have to thorw would be 38.18 meters.

Good job Warren! Nice picture. :)
