the equation would be 16^2 + x^2 = 19^2
anonymous
  • anonymous

ok so im not sure what u did lol but what u do is u just square the numbers 256 + x^2 = 361 do u understand how i got to this point?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea not really
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok um
anonymous
  • anonymous
16 squared = 256 and 19 squared = 361 and x squared still just equals x squraed
anonymous
  • anonymous
and you put them back in the equation 256 + xsquared = 361
anonymous
  • anonymous
did that help?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes

ok so you know how to do inverse operations right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so you would do that and then get x^2 = 105
anonymous
  • anonymous
understand?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so whats the opposite of squaring a number?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Square root?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes
anonymous
  • anonymous
so you would square root 105 and then that would be your answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
tell me what you get when you do that
anonymous
  • anonymous
