Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is done by the Pythagoras theorem c^2 = a^2 + b^2 where c = hypotenuse and a and b are the legs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there are many solutions to your question if the legs of the triangle are equal then c^2 = 2 a^2 (√18 )^2 = 2 a^2 18 = 2 a^2 a^2 = 9 a = 3  the length of each leg is 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1 there are an infinite number of possibilities for other right angled triangles for example the squares of the 2 legs could be 8 and 10 so the 3 sides would be √18 , √10 and √8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1 any 2 squares adding up to 18 would do 2 and 16 , 7 and 11, etc etc
