  1. Great post Maya! I like your pictures they are neat and organized, though maybe next time make them a little bigger. Also, next time you should explain how you did the question and show each step. Also, adding some colour would make the post more interesting. Otherwise, great job! :D

  2. Good job maya! You're post was organized but your pictures were hard to read. Also, you made an error in your formula with the pythagoras theory. Instead of a2+b2=c2 You put, a2+a2=c2 Next time, you should look over your work, other than that great job!
