    An isosceles right triangle is one where the legs are the same. The hypotenuse is √2 times the length of the legs in this type of triangle. So multiply your given length by √2

    I think they want an exact answer. 8.49 is just an approximation for the given 6√2. Multiply 6√2 by √2

    or you can use the equation \[\huge\rm (6\sqrt{2})^2+(6\sqrt{2})^2=c^2\]
