16
21
30
37
4.30 is it correct?

i meant 30 is that correct

c^2 = a^2 + b^2
c^2 = 15^2 + 26^2
c^2 = 225 + 676 =901
c = sqrt(901) = ? 
yes its 30 thanks.

always draw the diagrams out, it makes the question much more clearer and easier to understand.
use the basic rule of C^2 = a^2 + b^2 
ANSWRS IS 30
