    Alright, then let's use our good friend, the pythagorean theorem. Are you familiar with it?

    Ok, then I'll just basically overview it. The pythagorean theorem allows you to solve for one of the three variables with it, given two already. It, in the formula form, states that A^2 + B^2 = C^2, where A and B are the two sides adjacent to the 90 degree corner of a right triangle, and C is the hypotenuse length, so let's fill in what we know. What information is given in your problem that can be input into this formula?
