1. 1. Using graph paper, draw a 4-inch line from the origin parallel to the positive x-axis.

2. Draw a 3-inch vertical line from the
origin parallel to the positive y-axis.

3. Complete the rectangle with the hor.
sides 4 inches long and the ver sides 3 inches long.

4.Draw a diagonal from the origin to the upper right hand corner of the rectangle. This is the resultant.

5. Measure the length of the resultant;
it should be approximately 5 inches.

Mandy runs 4km in 18min. She plans to run in a 15km race. How long will it take her to complete the race? distance = rate x time distance - 15 km time = solve for this rate = 4km/18min 4km/18 mins = 1km/4.5 mins so 15 kms x 4.5
