Do you know how to find hypotenuse?

3. LynFran

use the formula $a ^{2}+b^{2}= c ^{2}$

4. anonymous

okay

5. LynFran

where $c=\sqrt{(a ^{2}+b ^{2)}}$ note c is the Hypotenuse

6. anonymous

7. LynFran

ok all u have to do now is add the 2# and take the square root and u will find c ok

12. anonymous

sooooo

13. LynFran

c=18

14. LynFran

when the 2# add you get 324 and the square root of 324= 18 ok
