So you know the Pythagorean theorem right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
NO!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well let's say that the two legs are a and b and the hypotenuse is c. In the Pythagorean theorem, we can figure out the hypotenuse with the two legs. It looks like this \[\large a^{2}+ \large b^{2}= \large c^{2}\]

So then the answer would be?????
anonymous
  • anonymous
We'll get to that. So let's plug in our leg values, a and b. We'll get \[\large 15^{2}+20^{2}=c^{2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
So thats the answer!!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Our answer is the c. We're solving for that currently.
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk thanks!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks for what? Did you figure out the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
NO!!!!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
So do you still want my help or?
anonymous
  • anonymous
DUDE can u just tell me answer please!!!!! i will fan u!!!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait so the answer is 4,900???
anonymous
  • anonymous
Giving the answer directly is against the code of conduct so no, i can't just give you the answer. http://openstudy.com/code-of-conduct

  • anonymous
GOtcha but the answer then is 4,900???
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well what is \[\large 15^{2}?\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
225
anonymous
  • anonymous
And what is \[\large 20^{2}?\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
400
anonymous
  • anonymous
so do i add them toghether to get the answer??
anonymous
  • anonymous
Close. One more step after that. 225+400=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
kk and i get 625!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
and that the answer!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok so right now we have \[\large 625=c^{2}\] So to find c, we need to get the square root of both sides \[\large \sqrt{625}=c\] THIS will give you the answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
312.5
anonymous
  • anonymous
??????
anonymous
  • anonymous
We aren't dividing by 2, we're getting the square root of it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ooh so then.....
anonymous
  • anonymous
Go to http://web2.0calc.com/ and put sqrt(625) into the bar
anonymous
  • anonymous
this is 25!!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep. So 25 is your answer :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
man thanks bro u teached me something new man thanks ill will fan u!!
anonymous
  • anonymous
No problem :)
