**mysterychicken**, Saturday, June 6, 2009 at 11:04amYes; this is what my book says:

If the hypotenuse of a right triangle has length c, and the legs have lengths a and b, then c^2= a^2 + b^2

**bobpursley**, Saturday, June 6, 2009 at 11:08amOk, each of these cases involve a right triangle (second base;home;first base). You are looking for the hypotenuse c.

In the second, the vertical, half the base, and the side form the right triangle, you are looking for the vertical a.
