    the pathagorean thereom states that a^2 + b^2 = c^2. So you just plug in the numbers. (10)^2 + (24)^2 = c^2 100 + 576 = C^2 676 = C^2 then you take the square root of 676 which is 26

    Yes, KJSaif was probably doing the formula for something else.

    Actually he is correct @Monkey4224 @JColon25 He used the pythagorean theorem. And the answer is 26 too. !

    it states that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
