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

IN A PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL DIAMOND
On a professional baseball diamond, there are 90 feet between each of the bases.How far would the player have to throw the ball from first to third base?
To solve this we will be using the formula Pythagorean Theorem, which in translation is a²+b²=c².
90² is equivalent to 8,100
So the first thing you want to do is square all of the numbers.
So A²+B²=C², which in this case is 8,100+8,100= 16,200
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.
