### jordan's scribe post

Worksheet B

Question:

You've just picked up a ground ball at first base, and you see the other team's player runnig towards thrid base. How far do you have to throw the ball to get it from first base to thrid base, and runner out?

first, I wrote the Pythagorean theorem and then, i replaced the a squared and b squared to 90 because the legs are 90 squared. second, I solve the exponent numbers and then I add the answer to get 16200. third, i have to find the square root of 16200 in fraction and decimal form. for the fraction i use the chart to find it, i know that 127 is between 11 and 12 so my whole number is 11, to find the numerator i count how much needed to be 127, to find the denominator i add the bottom in the perfect square.
