Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@MikeyMaximum, you started right, but your fourth step is not the right one \[a^2+b^2=c^2\] \[5^2+15^2=c^2\\ 25+225=c^2\\ 250 = c^2\\ c=\sqrt{250}\\ = \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15*5 = 25 and 2*5 = 10 so 250 = 5*5 * 2*5 = 5^2 * 2*5 We have √250 = √5^2 * 2*5 = 5*√2*5= (calculator says) 15.8 , yeah B
