a^2+b^2=c^2

I came up with 2square root 5 please tell me if this is correct.

In a right triangle, Find the length of the side not given b=1, c=square root 10

thank you.

**Rohit**, Thursday, April 15, 2010 at 3:26pmFirst, you know the formula is a^2 + b^2 = c^2. Next, substitute the values: a^2 + 1^2 = root 10 ^2

Do the operations. a^2 + 1 = 10

Now= a^2 = 10-1

a^2 = 9

a = 3
