do i just do the pythagorean therom?

3. ChmE

use the Pythagorean theorem. $a ^{2}+b ^{2}=c ^{2}$Where a and b are the sides that make up the right angle, and c is the longest side.

4. janessia

i got 676 when i did the pythag theorem

5. ChmE

So.. $10^{2}+24^{2}=c ^{2}$

$676=c^{2} \rightarrow \sqrt{676}=\sqrt{c ^{2}}=c$
