write down the general formula which is :\[c^2 = x^2 + y^2\]

For this, you would use the pythagorean theorem:\[ a ^{2}+b ^{2}=c ^{2}\] Since the legs are 3 and 4, replace a and b with them. \[3^{2}+4^{2}=c ^{2}\] 9+16=c^2 25=c^2 Take the square root to get c=5

so c is : \[c =\sqrt{3^2 + 4^2} =\sqrt{25} = 5\]
