i would love to watch them but i have a dead line on this question and its by tomorrow mornign and i dont understand the questin

btw, Pythagoras Theorm = a^2 + b^2 = c^2 Where "c" is the Hypotenuse. or in other words, the longest side of the triangle.

do you recall the pythag thrm?

lol, saif recalls it :)

Now insert the values, a^2 + b^2 = c^2 100^2 + b^2 = 125^2 DYS

wow im confused
saifoo.khan
  • saifoo.khan
Where?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the missing like part im confused plugging in the numbers

a^2 + b^2 = c^2 this is the formula. you have to learn it. Now "a" and "b" are the values of normal sides. whereas "c" is the longest side.

in words: If you square one side (short side) of a right angle triangle and add it to the square of another side (another short side) , it equals the HYPOTENUSE (THE LONGEST SIDE)
anonymous
  • anonymous
srry, i mean the hypotenuse squared
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so in this case a would be 100 and b would be 125 right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i will do 100^2 which is 10,000 and 125 ^ 2 which is 15, 625
anonymous
  • anonymous
what do i do after that thats where i get stuck
anonymous
  • anonymous
and take the square root of 15625
anonymous
  • anonymous
WAIT noo stop for a second. 125 is your hypotenuse?
anonymous
  • anonymous
which is 125
anonymous
  • anonymous
so how do i connect 15625 and 10000 to the missing side
anonymous
  • anonymous
In this case, you will do (125)^2 - (100)^2 = b^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
which will get 15625 - 10000 = b^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
5625 is 15625 - 10000 =
anonymous
  • anonymous
do i take the square root of 5625
anonymous
  • anonymous
and then take the square root of both sides. |dw:1333082623666:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
...ok so you square the a and b and then minus the two products and take the square root of that answer and that answer is the missing side, that explanation is correct?
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm yes, just remember a^2+b^2 = c^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
C being the LONGEST SIDE.
anonymous
  • anonymous
a and b are any of the other sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok thanks so much u helped i gave u a medal :)
