    Use the pythagorean formula which states the sum of each side squared is equal to the square of the hypotenuse. Do you know which side is the hypotenuse?

    The longest side is the hypotenuse, it is also the side that is opposite the right (90 degree) angle.

    In your triangle it is the one that is given a measure of \[\sqrt{18}\]

    What is the hypotenuse squared? In other words what is:\[\sqrt{18}\sqrt{18}\]

    Next square the side that is given (3). that is what is 3*3 ? That would be 9.

    \[\sqrt{18-9}=\sqrt{9}=3\] A A A A A
