How do you figure the hypotenuse of aright triangle with legs measuring 7.8cm and 5.2cm
A^2 + B^2 = C^2
a2 + b2 = c2 where a and b are the sides and c the hypotenuse. Or the Pythagorean Theorem which is found at the following link... http://www.1728.org/pythgorn.htm
a2 + b2 = c2.(7.8) * (7.8) + (5.2 * 5.2) = h2. 60.84 + 27.04 = 87.88.Root of 87.88 is the hypotenuse.
