Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Use pythagoras theorem..... Pythagoras' theorem, is a relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle. It states that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Basically the concept is if you have three sides in a rightangled triangle, you can assume that the first side squared plus the second side squared equals the third side squared.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Meaning that in the triangle that you are given, \[10^2+x^2=26^2\] where x is the side we are trying to find the length of.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's a very simple algebraical equation which you should be capable of evaluating at your level I think.
