    first, find DG using the Pythagorean theorem then, find AG using the Pythagorean theorem again

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2, where a and b are the legs of a right triangle and c is the hypotenuse look at the bottom of the shape: there's a right triangle with legs 5 and 12, so what is the length of the hypotenuse, DG?

    legs = a and b = 5 and 12 a^2 + b^2 = c^2 what is a^2 + b^2?

    right, so a^2 + b^2 = c^2 = 169, so what is c?

    if c squared is 169, then what is c?

    hint: sqrt(c^2) = c

    the square root of c^2 is c, so if c^2 = 169, what is c?

    yes, we just found DG, which is 13. we can use the pythagorean theorem again to solve for AG
