    You do 53^2=45^2+x^2 solve for x then

    Alright, so here's how it goes a^2 + b^2 = c^2 Where c is the hypotneuse and a & b are the sides Note: this can only be used in right triangles So, a^2 is 45^2 we do not have b ^2, it is what we're solving for we have c^2, which is 53^2 So we do this: 53^2 - 45^2 = b^2\ Can you solve that?
