d. Complete the proportion to compare the first and third triangles.

c/a = ?/?

e. Cross Multiply ratios in part d to get simplified answer

f. Complete the steps to add the equations from part c and e.

Part c: b^2=_____________

Part e: a^2=_____________

a^2+b^2=________

g. Factor out a common factor from part f.

h. Finally, replace the expression inside the parentheses with one variable and then simplify the equation to a familiar form. HINT: look at large triangle at the top of this problem.
