Find length x in each triangle. Express your answer in simplified radical form.
leg 1 = 8
leg 2 = x
hypotenuse = 12
MY answer: so x = ã80
I got √80 or appr. 8.94
yes the symbol is a radical.
also since the directions say to leave as a radical form then i just leave it as radical 80 i don't have to simplify it to a decimal correct or wrong
Here is a neat way to show a radical sign
hold down the ALT key with your left hand, while at the same time pressing 251 with your right hand, then release the left hand,
Voila!!!
√
so, what do you think is my answer wrong.
