1. ## Distance and Dimension

Distance: On a portion of a city map, the centers of the streets are 340 feet apart horizontally and 480 feet apart vertically. Find the walking distance between A and B. How much shorter would the distance be if the diagonal street jointed the two points?

Dimension: A designer's diagram shows how a table is to be placed in a six ft. square portion of a room. Find the table's dimensions.

how far would one walk if they traveled 340 ft horizontally and 480 ft vertically? to find the diagonal distance, use the Pythagorean theorem

table length X width = 6 ... where is the diagram?
