Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Use Pythagoras theorem. Take AB = 8 inches BC = 6 inches AC = ? So, According to pythagoras theorem, AB^2 + BC^2 = AC^2 So, put their values, 8^2 + 6^2 = AC^2 64 + 36 = 100 = AC^2 Take square root of 100, which is 10. So, AC = 10 inches So your answer is 10.
