Just form some equations using the information that you are given.

e.g. area = \(\frac{1}{2}ab=4\)

and you are also told a+b=9
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
and you know from Pythagorus that \(c^2=a^2+b^2\)

65 is apparently wrong
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
where did you get 65 from?
anonymous
  • anonymous
that was my final answer
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
I think what you found was \(c^2=65\) - you now need to take its square root.
anonymous
  • anonymous
you cant
anonymous
  • anonymous
so u get +-65^(2)
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
the hypotenuse cannot be a negative number. so the answer should be:\[c^2=65\]therefore:\[c=\sqrt{65}\approx8.06\]
