Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay :P Well, the Pythagoras Theorem is a formula a^2 + b^2 = c^2 a and b are the two legs, and in this case, a would be 5 and b = 12 (or vice versa) The distance would be C, that's called the hypotenuse of a right triangle. so 5 squared is 5, since multiplying a negative by another negative equals a positive. and 12 squared is 144 so 144 + 25 = 169 then you find the square root of 169 and you have your answer. the square root of 169 is 13 Hope this helps :)
