ACT Question for July 11th


What is the distance, approximately, in the standard (x,y) coordinate plane between the points (2,0) and (0,8)?

Incorrect. This is the value of one of the triangle's legs.

Incorrect. Don't simply subtract the smallest leg from the largest.

This is the credited response. 8.25 is closest to 8. 

Incorrect. You simply added the length of the two sides; use Pythagorean Theorem to solve.

Incorrect. This would not work according to Triangle Inequality Theorem. The length of a triangle's third side must be between the difference and the sum of the other two sides.
