find x diagram attached!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, this one is nice . . . just like the one two problems ago.
that is a 4 and the other number is a 7 sorry its hard to write numbers on this thing!
First, add up the 7 and the 9: 16 Now, in this problem we can see that the hypotenuse (or longest side) is the 16. So, that will go in for c^2. Here's what we have in our Pythagorean theorem equation: a^2+15^2=16^2 Okay, let's square these: a^2+225=256 Next, subtract 225 from 256: a^2=31 Next, we need to take the square root of both sides: a=5.567764 (rounded)
Note: a is the same as x - sorry, this might seem confusing.
Aww . . thanks so much for the medal!
oh okay i understand now..but i have more haha
thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My pleasure!
