Hello, using the Pythagorean theorem √ a2+b2 = c
In this math problem:
distance 1 (squared) + distance 2 (squared) = sum, then take the square root to get your distance from point A to point B.
a = 20 feet
b = 21 feet
You should be able to plug those in to the equation above, and don't forget to square them, then add, and final steps is to take the square root.
Hope this is helpful.
