the hypotenuse of the right triangle is 13 and the base is 5 what is the height show your work
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
\[\huge \rm a^2+b^2=c^2\] Pythagorean theorem c is the longest side( hypotenuse ) so plugin c and b value solve for a

\[5^{2}+b ^{2}=13^{2}\]

looks good solve for b
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
how?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
btw base is b but that's not gonna change the answer

how would you cancel out 5^2 from left side ? would you add,subtract,multiply or divide by 5^2?
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
mulitiply so...\[25+b ^{2}=169\]
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
that's right 25+b^2=169 now move 25 to the right side so how would you cancel out 25 from left side ?
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
idk actullay
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
it's 25 `+`b^2 25 is positive at left side to cancel it out so should subtract 25 both sides
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
i am confused
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
\[\huge\rm 25 +b^2=169\] we have to solve for b so subtract 25 both sides
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
25=144
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
|dw:1442344735597:dw| both sides what would you get when you subtract 25 at left side ?
OregonDuck
  • OregonDuck
0 and on the right 144
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right |dw:1442344859009:dw| to cancel out the `square` you should take `square root both sides`

  • OregonDuck
ok so it is 12? right the answer for the hieght
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
yes right
