Kristin Livingstone Jamie O’Sullivan Sarah Luposello MAT118 4 April, 2011 Finding the Width of the SU Quad Plan: Because the quad is essentially a rectangle split into multiple triangles, we will be standing on the HBC side. Using the protractor we will figure out if the sidewalk that splits the quad in half meets the corner of the quad on the right side at either a 30, 45, or 60 degree angle. From there we can begin to measure the length of the middle sidewalk to the corner using the string and the yardstick. After determining the angle at which the corner hits, we can then apply geometric formulas to discover the length of the sides

Carrying out the Plan: In order to get the measurement of the part of the quad we measured we needed to get a yardstick, ball of string, and a protractor. All of these tools were crucial in getting a legitimate measurement of the quad. When we were actually on the quad we measured the side that was on the HBC side of the quad. We found that measurement of the side to be 3296.2 inches long. Next

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
