fill in the parts to the pythag and then rearrange to solve the missing
well if a^2= b^2+c^2 and you have a and either b or c then just solve for b or c
a^2 + b^2 = c^2 a^2 = c^2 - b^2
So, normally if I were to be looking for the hypotenuse then the legs would be A and B and the hypotenuse is C? So I rearrange it accordingly to what I know like the equations you just showed me?
becasue when you subtract b^2 from each side ... well, .... you subtract it
That doesn't make sense (what you just wrote). Also, I still don't get it. Because it's: a^2 + b^2 = c^2 Why does that become a subtraction sign when it is rearranged?
well, lets use real numbers 5 + 3 = 8 does 5 = 8 + 3 ?
because that is how algebra works if you have 4 = 2 + x and you want to figure out x you take 2 from both sides and you get x = 4- 2 this si the same and a b and c are just variables it doesn't matter how you write them just know that when you are adding it is for the hypotenuse and when you are subtracting it is for one of the two sides.
the equal sign represent balance between the weight of 2 opposing sides 5 + 3 = 8 is balanced and equal ; if we subtract 3 from each side it stays equal -3 -3 ---------- 5 + 0 = 5
Ohh okay! That makes sense now that you showed that example. Thanks :) I'll give it a try and see if I can get it right!
Still having some trouble on how to figure this out :/ I fill it in but I would come out with negatives every time with the way I am doing this. I'm doing it like you both said so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong?
No idea what to do now! :p
youre most likely mixing up your hypotenuse and side; the negative just means youve got them backwards 5 - 3 = 2 3 - 5 = -2
just drop the negative and youll be fine
a^2 = 36^2 - 32^2 a = sqrt(36^2 - 32^2)
we can also trim down some computations 36 = 9*4 32 = 8*4 (9*4)^2 - (8*4)^2 = 4^2 (9^2 - 8^2) a = 2 sqrt(81-64)
Wow, i was doing that wayyy different i think lol. i was doing 36x36 and 32x32 and i got numbers in the thousand range. so i just multiply it by 2 then? lol
the more you can simply to begin with, the smaller your calculations will be either way itll turn out the same if you do the mathing right :)
Okay lol. Thank you soo much! I was completely confused but I get it now :)
