    Answer:

    The sum of the squares of the two sides equals the square of the hypotenuse (a² + b² = c²).

    Let’s say you have a triangle with a 90º angle (also known as a right angle). The two equal legs are a and b while the hypotenuse is the longer side. Hypotenuse is and always will be c.

    Here’s a problem:

    c ⊿ a (12)

      b (6)

    C is missing, we have to find C, so here’s what we do:

    Step 1: You square all the numbers in the equation

    12² + 6² = c²

    144 + 36 = c

    Step 2: You add 144 + 36 and you get 180

    Step 3: Then you find the square root >>  \sqrt{180\\ and you get ≈13.4

    Now sometimes, the a or b would be missing, for example:

    c (13)⊿ a

         b (5)

    A is missing (when a or b is missing, use the following formula, do not use the same formula when c is missing)

    Step 1: You square all the numbers in the equation

    a² + 5² = 13²

    a + 25 = 169

    For this next part, you must subtract a or b (in this case, b) on both sides, for example:

    25 – 25 = 169 – 25

    25 – 25 cancels itself out so now we subtract 169 by 25 and we get 144.

    Then we find the square root of 144 and we get 12

    I hope this helps 🙂
