triangle-find the length of the missing side? a= 16, b = 63 please walk me through this.

  • Algebra Not enough information - ,

    It must be more than 63 - 16 = 47
    It must be less than 63 + 16 = 79
    Other than that I do not know without knowing the angle between sides.
    If it is a right triangle, is 63 the hypotenuse?

  • Algebra - ,

    yes it is a right triangle -b is the side length and a is the base

  • Algebra - ,

    Pythagorean theorem.

    a^2 + b^2 = h^2

    16^2 + 63^2 = h^2

    Solve for h.
