    ok, so a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    where a is what we want (or b, doesn't matter)

    and solve for the remaining variable (remember to square root it)

    okay I got 2 sqrt 798 so my answer would be A?

    i don't see how you got 798. are you squaring the 71 and 43?

    you have to square the numbers then subtract, then square root. start by doing 71 ^2, what is that

    \[2 \sqrt{798}=56.4978 \]
