The editor for Blogger doesn't have a square root sign available, so I will use sqrt(2) to signify the square root of 2, for example.
Here are two sides of a right triangle. In these problems, c is always the hypotenuse and a and b are the short sides, also called the legs. Find the missing side using the Pythagorean Theorem, write it as a square root in simplified form and give the approximation to the nearest thousandth.
1) a = 7, b = 6, c = _________
2) b = 6, c = 7, a = __________
Here are some fractions with the square root in the denominator. Write them in standard form and simplify.
Find the distance between the two given points using the formula Distance = sqrt((x1 - x2)² + (y1 - y2)²). Write the number as a square root in simplified form and give the approximation to the nearest thousandth.
5) (3, 7) and (-2, 6)
6) (3, 1) and (-5, -9)
