Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What I got was 4225, but that answer is not in any of my multiple choice options for the problem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1LOL yes, because that's our value for x^2 not "x". see how in the diagram i wrote: "x^2 = 39^2 + 52^2" x^2 = 4225 To find "x", you want to SQUARE ROOT 4225.
