## anonymous one year ago What is the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle if each of the two legs is 7 units? Square root of 14 7 Square root of 98 49

1. Nnesha

Pythagorean theorem $\huge\rm a^2+b^2=c^2$ c is the longest side of riaght triangle which is hypotenuse plug in a ,b values solve for c

2. anonymous

What? That really just confused me! Lol! I'm trying to understand this, but I don't get it!

3. anonymous

I have nothing to plug in

4. Nnesha

to find 3rd side of *right* triangle you have to use Pythagorean theorm a^2+b^2=c^2

5. Nnesha

6. anonymous

7^2+7^2=c^2 49+49=c^2 98^2

7. Nnesha

take the square root of 98 not the square

8. anonymous

Ok so its 98?

9. Nnesha

no c^2 =98 but you need c so take square root both sides

10. anonymous

I think it would be 49

11. Nnesha

no

12. Nnesha

take square root both sides how would you write it ?
