How do you find the length of their hypotenuses given sides 10 and 12?
The hypotenuse is
For this, you use the Pythagorean Theorem. This theorem is
In any right triangle, you have 2 legs and a hypotenuse. The two legs are the shortest sides, and the ones that share the right angle, and the hypotenuse is the other side, and the longest side. The two legs are known as
Start off by plugging your sides (the legs in the case) into the formula.
Now to reverse the exponent on the
So the hypotenuse is
