One leg of a right triange mesures 15 m and the hypotenuse is 17 m, what is the length of the other leg?
\[a^2 + b^2 = c^2\]\[15^2 + b^2 = 17^2\]\[225 + b^2 = 289\]\[b^2 = 64\]\[b=\sqrt{64}\]\[b=8\]
you have to use the formula: x^2 + y^2 = r^2. 15^2 + y^2 = 17^2 225 + b^2 = 289 b^2 = 64 b = 64−−√ b = 8

same formula as above, just plug in 52 for c and 38 for b and solve for a.
but can u tell me the anwser please
the answer should be approximately 35.5
