    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

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

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

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