Unformatted text preview: For example: The two shorter sides of a right angled triangle are 3 and 4, what is the length of the hypotenuse. c^2 = a^2 + b^2 c^2 = 3^2 + 4^2 c^2 = 9 + 16 c^2 = 25 So: c = 5 The hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is 13 and one of the shorter sides is 5, calculate the length of the other side. c^2 = a^2 + b^2 13^2 = 5^2 + b^2 169 = 25 + b^2 169  25 = b^2 144 = c^2 So: c = 12...
