**Ms. Sue**, Monday, November 1, 2010 at 5:39pmThe Theorem of Pythagoras states that you can find the hyptonuse of a right triangle by using this formula.

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

Your triangle's base is 6 feet. Its height is 8 feet. You want to find c (the hypotenuse).

(6 * 6) + (8 * 8) = c^2

36 + 64 = c^2

100 = c^2

10 = c
