Applying Pythagoras theorems in the two triangles formed:
PT = Hypotenuse^2 = Perpendicular^2 + Base^2
Triangle formed between City Centre and Sojourner ParkPresentation1.pptx
Hypotenuse^2 = 4^2 + 5^2 = 16 + 25 = 49
Hypotenuse = 7 miles
Similarly we will get for the trianles made by mall and city centre
Hypotenuse^2 = 2^2 + 3^2 = 4 + 9
Hypotenuse = route of 13
Hypotenuse = 3.6 miles
Hence total road length = 7 + 3.6 = 10.6 miles
Hey really sorry, I made a mistake in adding 16 & 25.
Please find ther right solution here.
Hypotenuse^2 = 4^2 + 5^2 = 16 + 25 = 41
Hypotenuse = 6.40 miles
Hypotenuse = 3.5 miles
Hence total road length = 6.4 + 3.5= 9.9 miles
I hope you will best the solution !!!!!!!!!!!!
