Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well 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 \[\large a^{2}+ \large b^{2}= \large c^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We'll get to that. So let's plug in our leg values, a and b. We'll get \[\large 15^{2}+20^{2}=c^{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok 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
