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?

  1. This is a right-angle 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
