This is known as the pythagorean theorem

  • Maddy1251
We use the pythagorean theorem to find side lengths of right triangles.

We have sides, opposite, adjacent, and hypotenuse, that we plug into the equation

Geometry and trig get into that more than Algebra does.

the variable 'c' is the longest side (hypotenuse) while a and b are the remaining shorter sides.

for a its called literal equations

A literal equation is an equation where variables represent known values. Literal equations allow use to represent things like distance, time, interest, and slope as variables in an equation.

in this case, 'a' is a side length to a given figure, a right triangle.

  • Maddy1251
You're dealing with the Pythagorean theorem. In mathematics, the Pythagorean theorem, also known as Pythagoras' theorem, is a relation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides of a right triangle. 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.
