$a ^{2} + b ^{2} = c ^{2}$

You have a square deck with an area of $17m^{2}$ You would like to double that area. What is the length of one side of the new deck.

3. anonymous

a^2 + b^2 = C^2 3x^2 +4x + 7 a=3,b=4,c=7

im a little confused. whats the question? just the one about the square? that doesnt really involve pythagorean theorem.

right. you have a square thats going to have an area of 34 square meters (because we doubled the 17 square meters). So you have:$x\cdot x=34 \Longrightarrow x^2 = 34\Longrightarrow x = \sqrt{34}$|dw:1320887833591:dw|
