That is a rectangular. So u will use the formula for that

@sabeelio do you know how to do this?
 one year ago

sabeelioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
okay so you must use pythagoren theorem since this is a right triangle which is a^2 + b^2 = c^2

a and b are the legs and c is the hypotenus so plug in your values into the equationa nd you'll ge tyour answer

the same theorom should help with your answer for number 2

so what do you think your equation would be?

nanaheadsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
are you saying it'd be: 12^2+ 6^2 = c^2?
 one year ago

sabeelioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes exactly then just solve for c and that is your asnwer

sabeelioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so uoy have 144 +25 = 169 and the square root of 169 is 13 so that is your answer
 one year ago

sabeelioBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now if you apply that to the 2nd question and find the value of c you can get the right answer there as well, it is a rectangle so it is 16 on top and bopttom and 12 on left and right and split into 2 triangleks, so you just find the hypotenus (c) of one of the triangles and you will get your answer
