Find GH to the nearest tenth. ----- Assuming you are looking for the length of GH you get: GH = sqrt[(3--3)^2 + (2--2)^2] --- GH = sqrt[36+16] --- GH = sqrt[52] --- GH = 2sqrt(13) = 7.2 to the nearest tenth. ================ Cheers, Stan H. Answer by oberobic(2304)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The line GH from (-3,2) to (3,-2) can be depicted as the hypotenuse of a triangle. The other corner of the triangle is at (-3,-2). . a = vertical from (-3,-2) to (-3,2). It has length 4. . b = horizontal from (-3,-2) to (3,-2). It has length 6. . c^2 = 4^2 + 6^2 . c^2 = 16 + 36 . c^2 = 54 . c = sqrt(54) . sqrt(54) = sqrt(9*6) . sqrt(9*6) = 3*sqrt(6) . c is approximately = 7.3485 . Done.
