Part 1: Measure the distance of the diagonal (from one corner to the opposite corner) of the screen on your computer monitor to the nearest tenth of a centimeter or sixteenth of an inch. Measure the height of the screen along the vertical as well. Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the width along the horizontal

In your post, include the length of the diagonal, the width, and the calculations needed to determine the horizontal length of your computer monitor. After you have calculated the approximate length using Pythagorean theorem, use a measuring device to measure the horizontal length of your monitor. Was your measurement close? Why might the measurements not be exactly the same?

Typing hint: Type Pythagorean theorem as a^2 + b^2 = c^2. Do not use special graphs or symbols because they will not appear when pasted to the discussion board.

Part 2: Using the Library, web resources, and/or other materials, find a real-life application of a quadratic function. State the application, give the equation of the quadratic function, and state what the x and y in the application represent. Choose at least two values of x to input into your function and find the corresponding y for each. State, in words, what each x and y means in terms of your real-life application. Please see the following example. Do not use any version of this example in your own post. You may use other variables besides x and y, such as t and S depicted in the following example. Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.
