use the pythagorean theorem: \(\large (hypotenuse)^2=(leg_1)^2+(leg_2)^2 \)

or if you don't want to work with large numbers, notice that 48 = 16*3 and 80=16*5. they both have a common factor of 16 so just work with a leg of 3 and hypotenuse of 5... just be sure to multiply your answer by 16 at the end..
is it 56 in?
how did you get 56?
while we're at it, how did you get 70?
even if one of them is correct i need to see how you got it so i can say, "yes, it's correct"
