x = shortest side `the hypotenuse is 1 inch longer than twice the shortest side` so we know the hypotenuse is 2x+1 inches long `The third side is 7 inches longer than the shortest side` which means the third side is x+7 inches long you should have something like this drawing |dw:1443218997010:dw|

@jim_thompson5910 Yes, I was getting the sides confused. so now i plug them into the a^2+b^2+c^2=0 formula?

a^2 + b^2 = c^2 actually
