Q:
# Your friend is looking at laptops for college, and is comparing the different screen sizes. Use the diagram and formula below to find the width of the laptop screen. Round your answerD= W^2+H^2 (The image of the figure is a rectangle in half, the top side is D= 17inch the H= 9inch, W is blank) Mutiple choices are A. W= 16.7 inchB. W= 9.9 inchC. W= 8 inchD. W= 14.4 inch

Accepted Solution

A:

For this case what we should do is write correctly the given equation:

D ^ 2 = W ^ 2 + H ^ 2

We substitute the values:

D = 17inch

H = 9inch

Substituting:

17 ^ 2 = W ^ 2 + 9 ^ 2

We clear the value of W:

W = root (17 ^ 2 - 9 ^ 2)

W = 14.4 inch

Answer:

The width of the laptop screen is:

D. W = 14.4 inch

D ^ 2 = W ^ 2 + H ^ 2

We substitute the values:

D = 17inch

H = 9inch

Substituting:

17 ^ 2 = W ^ 2 + 9 ^ 2

We clear the value of W:

W = root (17 ^ 2 - 9 ^ 2)

W = 14.4 inch

Answer:

The width of the laptop screen is:

D. W = 14.4 inch
