Sketch the right triangle and find the length of the side not given. If necessary, approximate the length to the nearest thousandth. leg = 6, leg = 8
Do you know the pythagorean theorem?
\[a ^{2}+b ^{2}=c ^{2}\]
that is the pythagorean theorem. do you know what you are trying to find?
so you have two of the legs of a triangle, so therefore, you are trying to find the hypotenuse or \[c ^{2}\] \[a ^{2}\] is one of your legs and \[b ^{2}\] as your other all you need to do is plug it in
