anonymous 4 years ago please help.! Two legs of a triangle measure 16 m and 34 m. How many meters long is the hypotenuse? Round your answer to the nearest tenth.

familiar with the Pythagorean theorem?

16^2 + 34^2 = h^2

let the hypoth. be C, A=16, and B=34 $A^2+B^2=C^2$ and therefore: $C= \sqrt{A^2+B^2}$ C= $\sqrt{256+1156}$ C=37.57658
