Hello, using the Pythagorean theorem √ a^{2}+b^{2} = 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.
