The first thing you can do is divided 6 by 2 and get 3. Since you drew a line in the middle to create 2 right triangles. |dw:1343416795252:dw|

Can you figure out the rest from here using the formula a^2+b^2=c^2??

4. Studybug123

pythagorean theorem

5. Studybug123

so what is 3^2+4^2?

6. computergeek123

144

7. Studybug123

How did you get that? I got a different answer.. 3x3+4x4=

8. Studybug123

nvm you're right.

9. Studybug123

wait..

10. Studybug123

3x3+4x4=25, but you did 3x3x4x4=144.. See the difference?

11. computergeek123

ok

12. Studybug123

so anyways, it's 25. $\sqrt{25}=5$

13. Studybug123

so now you know one side, so you should know the other side

16. Studybug123

can you add up all the sides?

17. Studybug123

yes

18. Studybug123

I believe it's 16 units :)
