At Emmit’s Evergreen
Farm, the taller trees are
braced by wires. A wire
extends from 2 feet below
the top of a tree to a stake
in the ground. What is the
tallest tree that can be
braced with a 25-foot wire
staked 15 feet from the
base of the tree?

What is the length of the diagonal of a 10 cm by
15 cm rectangle?
Draw a picture:
Using the Pythagorean Theorem
Looking for length of
the hypotenuse
a2 + b2 = c2
102 + 152 = x2
100 + 225 = x2
325 = x2
325 = 𝑥 2
18.028 ≈ 𝑥
The diagonal of a 10
cm by 15 cm rectangle
is approx. 18.028 cm.

Back of WS #2 – Problem #9:
The diagonal of a rectangle is 25 in. The width is
15 in. What is the length?
Draw a picture:
Using the Pythagorean Theorem
Looking for length of
a leg
a2 + b2 = c2
x2 + 152 = 252
x2 + 225 = 625
-225 -225
x2 = 400
𝑥 2 = 400
x = 20
The length of the
rectangle is 20 in.

• For Problem #15, fill in the following picture:
Remediation: Using Square Roots &
Cube Roots to Solve Equations
Solve 𝑥 2 = 64.
• Option 1: Think, “What squared gives me 64?”
– Remember: Squaring is multiplying something by
itself 2 times. For example, 52 = 5 ∙ 5.
• Option 2: Think, “x is being squared; how do I
undo squaring?”
• Either way, the answer is 8 = 64.
Remediation: Using Square Roots &
Cube Roots to Solve Equations
Solve 𝑥 2 = 35.
• Option 1: Think, “What squared gives me 35?”
– However, you can’t square a whole number or a
fraction to give you 35.
• Option 2: Think, “x is being squared; how do I
undo squaring?”
FYI
Unless the problems says otherwise:
• You may leave irrational answers as square
problems (not word problems).
• You should give numerical approximations of
word problems; round to the number of
decimal places specified in the directions.
Remediation: Using Square Roots &
Cube Roots to Solve Equations
Solve 𝑥 3 = 64.
• Option 1: Think, “What cubed gives me 64?”
– Remember: Cubing is multiplying something by
itself 3 times. For example, 53 = 5 ∙ 5 ∙ 5.
• Option 2: Think, “x is being cubed; how do I
undo cubing?”
• Either way, the answer is 4 =
3
64.
Remediation: Using Square Roots &
Cube Roots to Solve Equations
Solve 𝑥 3 = 20.
• Option 1: Think, “What cubed gives me 20?”
– However, you can’t cube a whole number or a
fraction to give you 20.
• Option 2: Think, “x is being cubed; how do I
undo cubing?”
