    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.


    Please help me with these two questions! Thank you!

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

    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.

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