    Use 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.

    26^2=10^2+x^2 Find x after that. :)

    Basically the concept is if you have three sides in a right-angled triangle, you can assume that the first side squared plus the second side squared equals the third side squared.

    Meaning 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.

    Can you try to solve the equation I have given above for x?

    Can you solve the equation \[10^2+x^2=26^2\]

    That's a very simple algebraical equation which you should be capable of evaluating at your level I think.
