Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, you don't add them and take the square root. That only works if you have two legs. Plug the numbers into pygathorean's equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find the hypotenuse, you would add them, since you are trying ti find the height, you do the opposite and subtract them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you would just use pythagorean's theorem and plug in the appropriate numbers there would be no discrepancies. Memorizing that you need to "add this and that and take the square root" or "add this and subtract that and take the square root" will not get you far in mathematics.
