    a^2 + b^2 = c^2 x^2 + 15^2 = 17^2 solve for x

    Wouldn't the "^2" for the X and the 15 multiply?

    so you'll have x^2 + 225 = 289 after you square the 15 and the 17

    don't worry about the x for now, how would you move that 225 over to the right side?

    as @jim_thompson5910 has said...you have x^2 + 225 = 289 if we want to isolate x²...and get it all by itself on thaat left side....how would we move the 225 to the right side of the = sign?
