## moongazer 4 years ago Two sides of a right triangle measures 6 and 8, What is the third side?

1. moongazer

does this mean that the 2 sides measuring 6 and 8 are the legs and the third side is the hypotenuse?

2. moongazer

this is my interpretation of the statement

Use Pythagoras theorem: - $h^2=p^2+b^2 \implies h=\sqrt{p^2+b^2}.$ Here, p= take 6 & b= take 8 Now find "h". Tell me what do u get?
