    we are given that hypotenuse is 12 in length and one side is 11 , we need to find the third side . let it's length be x |dw:1328028599813:dw|

    its of the form: a^2 + b^2 = c^2 where a and b are legs of a triangle, and c is the hypotenuse

    It states that hypotenuse's square is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides here \[12^2=11^2+x^2\] \[144=121+x^2\] \[x^2=23\] so the third side is \[\sqrt{23}\]
