Q:
# Find the length of the missing side. Leave your answer in simplest radical form.The triangle is not drawn to scale.A.) 25B.) 144C.) 5D.) Square root of 5

Accepted Solution

A:

Solve for hypotenuse

Hypotenuse =Β [tex] \sqrt{a^{2}+b^{2}} [/tex]

Substitute 3 for A and 4 for B

[tex] \sqrt{3^{2}+4^{2}} [/tex]

Solve exponents

3^2 = 9

4^2 = 16

[tex] \sqrt{9+16} [/tex]

Add

9 + 16 = 25

[tex] \sqrt{25}[/tex]

Solve square root

[tex] \sqrt{25}[/tex] = 5
