The quarterback throws a pass from 10 yards from a goal line and 25 yards from a sideline. A receiver catches the pass at 40 yards from the same goal line and 5 yards from the same sideline. How long was the pass?

Ms. Sue,
This is a rightangle triangle and you need to find the hypotenuse.
Pythagorean Theorem:
a^2 + b^2 = c^2
30^2 + 20^2 = c^2
900 + 400 = c^2
1300 = c^2
36.06 yards = c
