**Claudia**, Tuesday, December 4, 2007 at 8:13pmfirst you must have the formula

a^2+b^2=c^2

now you just have to plugg in the numbers into the formula

a^2+24^2=25^2

solve for a

do it and then post your answer I will check if it is right

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, December 4, 2007 at 8:13pmYou'll need to plug these lengths in this theorem:

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

a^2 + 576 = 625

a^2 = 49

a = ?
