Sorry I don't remember this stuff:)

3. marcoduuuh

It's okay, thank you for trying!

4. Reaper534

have heard of pathagorome therome

5. marcoduuuh

No?

6. Reaper534

a2+b2=c2

7. marcoduuuh

14^2+5^2=m?

8. Reaper534

@Frostbite it tht right i can really tell

9. jazy

c is always the hypotenus

10. jazy

*hypotenuse

11. cwrw238

you use the property of similar triangles triangles ABC and CDB are similar

12. Reaper534

it lagged for me my internet sux srry

13. cwrw238

the corresponding sides are in the same ratio

14. marcoduuuh

Still don't get it /: Is there an equation I have to do?

15. cwrw238

so DC / m = m / AC and DC = 5 and AC = 19

16. cwrw238

similar triangles have the same shape that is corrsponding angles are aequal in the diagram < BDC = <ABC <ACB = <DCB so other angls are also equal

17. cwrw238

so going back to the formula 5 /m = m /19 m^2 = 5*19 = 95 so m = sqtt 95 (Option B)

Thank you so much!
