7-43.

On graph paper, graph the points ,

*, and*

*. Which point (*

*or*

*) is closer to point*

*?*

**Justify**your conclusion.

Plot the points. **A graph with 3 points. A (2, comma 9). B (4, comma 3). C (9, comma 6).**

Draw lines to show the distance between points and

*and between points*

*and*

*.*

**Draw a line from point A to B. Draw a second line from point B to C.**

Draw slope triangles for both line segments. **Draw a vertical line straight down from point A, 6 units, then right 2 units to connect to point B. Then drawn a horizontal line from point B, right, 5 units, and then up, 3 units to connect to point C.**

Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the lengths of the line segments.
