Q:
# the hypotenuse of a right triangle is 25 cm and the shorter leg is 15cm find the length of the other leg

Accepted Solution

A:

Using Pythagorean Therom, we know that the longest side or 25, when squared is equal to the height squared plus the width squared or[tex]A^{2} + B^{2} =C^{2} [/tex] where C is the Hypotenuse. [tex]25^{2}-15^{2} =400 or 20^{2} [/tex]
