A right triangle has base (x - 6) units and height (6x - 12) units. Part A: What is the square of the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle? Show your work. (4 points) Part B: What is the area of the triangle? (3 points) Part C: Using the solution obtained in Part B, explain the closure property of multiplication of polynomials. (3 points)

    correlation coefficient is 1 slope is 5/10 which reduces to 1/2 not sure about the 3rd one

    I think it has to do with A^2 + B^2 = C^2 where C^2 is your hypotenuse. (x-6)^2 + (6x - 12)^2 = c^2.ok he belives it like this

    Part B: The area A of a triangle is A=(1/2)bh where b is base and h is height. Refer to diagram above A=(1/2)(x-6)(6x-12) simplify by taking 1/2 of the height h getting (3x-6) now multiply (x-6)(3x-6) getting: 3x^2 - 24x + 36 sq units

    Part C. Just show that the multiplication of two polynomials (x-6)(3x-6) results in a polynomial 3x^2 - 24x + 36 as a result of the distributive process and combing of similar terms.
