Find c if a = 7 and b = 9. Right triangle with sides a, b, and c. Side c is opposite the right angle. A. c = 16 B. c = 4 C. c = 3 times the square root of 7 D. c = the square root of130
Use the pythagoreon theroem!
Did you? What's up? Let's Math.
um like this A^2 +B^2= C^2
You got it. You are given A and B. Let's do it. 7^2 + 9^2 = C^2.
@somebodys_heartbrake that's exactly the same question as the previous one except this one has different values. And now you don't know square roots and squaring which should of been taught in primary/elementary school.
Sweet whats 49+81?
Alright so far we know that 130 = C^2. What's C???
@Azteck you are right infact i had replied in previos question and when i saw this i thought my reply got deleted :O .
I think it's a different question, but then it's just using the same format as the previous one.
Alright so far we know that C^2 = 130. Let's find C. Do you know how to find square roots, or are you a little bit rusty?
Do you know the square root of say 9? Or do you know nothing about square roots? I don't care either way so just be honest
haha alright :) Let's learn some square roots then. I'm not a math teacher but i'll try my best.
ok thanks for helping btw
So basically a square root is " What number multiplied by itself will give me this number"
@RandomFriend i appreciate your effort to help the asker get to the answer ..make sure you do not spoonfeed anyone in the process ,happy studying! :)
@AravindG Thanks! Happy internet moderating.
Anyway another way to look at square roots is "What number SQUARED, equals this number?" So lets look at \[\sqrt{4}\] . 2 squared . Aka 2*2 = 4
wouldnt it be 3 to the first 1 u asked
Yeah exactly. 3*3 = 9. So the square root of 9 is three.
Alright it works with letters or "variables" too. What's the square root of \[\sqrt{x^2}\] ?
Nice. X*X = X^2. How about something that applies to us. What is the \[\sqrt{C^2}\]
well done @somebodys_heartbrake and @RandomFriend :)
Nailed it. So we left off at \[C^2 = 130\]. What happens if we take the square root of both sides?
um not sure
Write it out for me. Put a square root symbol around both sides.
idk how to do that
......................
Alright so we are just going to draw a square root sign around both sides. You can do it. I'll do it first. \[\sqrt{C^2} = \sqrt{130}\]
@somebodys_heartbrake please make a thorough reading on this tutorial http://www.mathsisfun.com/square-root.html
@somebodys_heartbrake wants to know how to write a square root sign like what @RandomFriend did above. I don't think @somebodys_heartbrake knows how to use the equation editor.
I dont care if you don't know how to use the equation thing. As long as you get it. Do you see how i got my equation above?
Alright I'ma move on. from here \[\sqrt{C^2} = C. \]. This givese us C = sqrt(130). Which was one of our answers I believe.
