can someone tell me the missing leg of the right triangle if 10 is the other leg and 26 is the hypotenuse

its 16

"confused gurl" is indeed confused

a^2 + 10^2 = 26^2

a^2 = 676-100

a^2=576

a=24

Your triangle is simply a multiple of one of the basic right-angled triangles, the 5,12,13 combination.
