i need some help with this geometry
Remember Pythagoras?
split into right angled triangles xz=yw so you have one side 15 and one side 8 you want to work out the hypotonuse a²+b²=c² 8²+15²=289 square root 289 to get c c=17
square them and add them and then find the square root yes does it mater witch one is a or b ???
thanks guys for the help :)
c is hypotonuse a and b are the others it isnt important for a and b you can re arrange the formula to work out a and b
thanks guys i got this down now thanks to yall :)
use pythagoras theorem since opposite sides of a rectangle are equal base=15 inches and altitude=8 inches Applying pythagoras theorem \[15^{2}+8^{2} =h^{2} \] \[\sqrt{289}\] =17 therefore length of diagonal is 17
