Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we are given DC but we need HC to do the so called Pythagoras yes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now what we do is look at the triangle HCB it is also a right triangle and we are given BC and BH so we can find HC

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so then we have the following:\ HC^2+BC^2=BH^2 HC^2=BH^2BC^2 HC^2=20^212^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we go back to our first triangle HDC now we have HC=16 and DC=14 we use again that same theorem to find HD HD^2+DC^2=HC^2 HD^2=HC^2DC^2 HD^2=16^214^2
