What Is the Value Could the Length of the Third Side Be If Two Side Lenths Are10 and 14?


To find the length of any side of a right triangle, you use the Pythagorean theorem, which states that a squared plus b squared equals c squared. Summing the squares of the two sides and taking the square root gives us the length of the third side as 17.20.

0 < a < 16 where a is the length of the third side.
Use the Pythagorean theorem: a²+b²=c². If both a and b are 3, then: 3²+3²=c². 9+9=c². sqrt(18 = sqrt(c². ~4.24 units = c. ~4.24 is closest
It's 8. As the previous answer pointed out, the two smaller sides must add up to more than the longest side. What Garret failed to point out is that answer 3) is also no good, because
