Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use the formulas a = x^2 – y^2, b = 2xy, c = x^2 + y^2 to answer this question. One leg of a right triangle has length 11 and all sides are whole numbers. Find the lengths of the other two sides. The other leg= And the hypotenuse=

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well since this is a right angle triangle, we can already use the properties of Pythagoras' theorem. But before, we start on doing anything, we have to let one side equal to 11. I recommend not the hypotenuse to be 11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just remember, that we are working in 'x' and 'y' so you have to mold your equations around those variables

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But we have to let either 'a' or 'b' equal 11, since that is out clue here ~

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The hypotenuse is: C = x^2 + y^2 a = x^2  y^2 b = 2xy So we are given one side is equivalent to 11, so which side you will to make it 11?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0b = 2xy b = 11 so 11 = 2xy Thus > x = 11 / 2y Try substituting that into a now, and let see what you get
