Homework Help: Precalculus!

Posted by kajal on Friday, September 16, 2011 at 6:18pm.

So I have this major assignment due, and I cant seem to figure this one out:

A right triangle is formed in the first quadrant by the x- and y-axes and a line through the point (5, 3). Write the length L of the hypotenuse as a function of x(the x-intercept of the line).

Can someone please help me on this problem? The answer has to be in the most simplified version possible. An explanation would greatly be appreciated. thank you
