I am having problems understanding how to
solve problems like the following:
a2 + b2 = c2
Please help me where I can understand solving problems such as the one above.

Do you mean ??
A squared + B squared = C squared??
Let's take a right angle triangle with the two short sides (adjacent to the right angle) that measure 4 inches and 5 inches.
A^2 = 4 squared = 16
B^2 = 5 squared = 25
16 + 25 = C^2
41 = C^2
6.4 = C 
dunno
