North and east can be considered the directions of the y and x-axis respectively. Round to the tenth's place.Answer by funmath(2926)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Suppose you were north for 35 kilometers then travel east 65 kilometers. How far are you from your starting point? North and east can be considered the directions of the y and x-axis respectively. Round to the tenth's place. If you were to draw the lines of your travel, you'd make a right triangle with one leg=35km another leg=65km The hypotenuse of the right triangle would be the distance from the origin, which is your starting point. The Pythagorean Theorem is , where c=hypotenuse and a,b are legs. Happy Calculating!!!!
