Just a small little math project we'll be working on.

PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM

IN A PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL DIAMOND

To solve this we will be using the formula Pythagorean Theorem, which in translation is a²+b²=c².

90² is equivalent to 8,100

90ft

90ft

90ft

90ft

So the first thing you want to do is square all of the numbers.

8,100ft

8,100ft

So A²+B²=C², which in this case is 8,100+8,100= 16,200

8,100ft

8,100ft

Then you square root 16,200, and that gives you 127.279220614

So now you go 8,100+8,100=16,200

So the total distance the ball is thrown is 127.279220614ft.
