1. a^2 +b^2 = c^2

9^2 + 12^2 = c^2

81 + 144 = c^2

225 = c^2

sqrt(225) = sqrt (c^2)

c = 15

2. 5^2 +b^2 = 13^2

25 + b^2 = 169

25-25 + b^2 = 169-25

b^2 = 144

b= 12

3. Q

15^2 +20^2 = c^2

225 +400 =c^2

625 = c^2

c = 25

4. Sqrt (4-(-2)^2 + (-6-2)^2))

Sqrt (36 + 64)

= 10

1.

Pythagorean theorem

c = sqrt ( a ^ 2 + b ^ 2 )

c = sqrt ( 9 ^ 2 + 12 ^ 2 )

c = sqrt ( 81 + 144 )

c = sqrt ( 225 )

c = 15

Answer C

2.

Pythagorean theorem

b = sqrt ( c ^ 2 - a ^ 2 )

b = sqrt ( 13 ^ 2 - 5 ^ 2 )

b = sqrt ( 169 - 25 )

b = sqrt ( 144 )

b = 12

Answer D

3.

Pythagorean theorem

c = sqrt ( a ^ 2 + b ^ 2 )

Answer A

becouse :

c = sqrt ( 20 ^ 2 + 15 ^ 2 )

c = sqrt ( 400 + 225 )

c = sqrt ( 625 )

c = 25

4.

The Distance Formula :

d = sqrt [ ( x2 - x1 ) ^ 2 + ( y2 - y1 ) ^ 2 ]

In this case :

x1 = - 2

x2 = 4

y1 = 2

y2 = - 6

d = sqrt [ ( 4 - ( - 2 ) ) ^ 2 + (- 6 - 2 ) ^ 2 ]

d = sqrt [ ( 4 + 2 ) ^ 2 + ( - 8 ) ^ 2 ]

d = sqrt [ 6 ^ 2 + ( - 8 ) ^ 2 ]

d = sqrt ( 36 + 64 )

d = sqrt ( 100 )

d = 10

bob, You need to study the Pythagorean theorem.

- Tagging and time! -

There is no "tagging" or "hashtagging" on Jiskha, thank goodness!!

And you should watch the time. You posted at 2:23 am!! ~ This website is set for Eastern (US) time, and most of the tutors are in either Eastern or Central time zones.
