They aren't explained in a way that I can understand them. Can you explain more clearly?
Don't know. I supplied both solutions, one using the pythagorean theorem, and one using the law of cosines.
pick one, and tell me the first place you get stuck. I'll try to walk you through it. I prefer the law of cosines, since it's for a trig class. If you don't know that, read about it and come on back.
Find distance PF
Stuck from here....
Let F be first base.
You know the angle PHF is 45 degrees, because the line to the mound is on the diagonal of the square.
So, cosH is easy to figure. Multiply, take square root, and you have d.
d = PF
Not the same answer you got.
So, what did you get for cos 45 degrees?
When you evaluate 282.24+501.76-752.64(cos45°) what do you get?
I get 251.8, not 22.1749
Steve, you are the best! Thanks for your patience.
