I've got something which is really bugging me about Pythagoras, and I was wondering if you could help explain to me why the answer comes out as 21.26.
I have the equation shown here:
So I input (12,30) and (28,16) and the result should show as 21.26.
I am having trouble understanding how it has been worked out simply because whenever work it out, it seems to come out as 4.
So really my question is: How do I actually calculate using Pythagoras and these values above so that the answer comes out as 21.26?
Thanks if you can help.
Until you show the complete working from which you got 21.63, it is impossible to say what mistake(s) you made in getting your answer of 21.63.
