Homework Help: math,correction

Posted by jas20 on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 8:41pm.

Find length x in each triangle. Express your answer in simplified radical form.

leg 1 = 8
leg 2 = x
hypotenuse = 12

MY answer: so x = ã80

I got √80 or appr. 8.94

yes the symbol is a radical.

also since the directions say to leave as a radical form then i just leave it as radical 80 i don't have to simplify it to a decimal correct or wrong

Here is a neat way to show a radical sign

hold down the ALT key with your left hand, while at the same time pressing 251 with your right hand, then release the left hand,

so, what do you think is my answer wrong.
