 Question 726436: Hello, Thanks in advance for helping me out with this math problem. I am glad there is someone out there who enjoys helping students on their assignments. The problem is as followed- Each year in an ancient land, a large river overflowed its banks, often destroying boundary markers. The royal surveyors used a rope with knots at 12 equal intervals to help reconstruct boundaries. Explain how a surveyor could use this rope to form a right angle. (Hint: Use the Pythagorean triple 3,4, and 5) Thank you once again.... I understand you would want to know what I think of this problem so far. I think one of the lengths of one ray of the angle is 3 and the other is 4. If it were a triangle the hypotenuse would be 5. However, once I read my answer it doesn't make sense... I know 3 times 4 equals 12? I don't know... Please help. Thank you so much Click here to see answer by mananth(12270)
