30. find the hypotenuse of a right triangle whose sides measure 9 and 12: i came up with the answer 15 but i honestly forgot how i got this answer please let me know what i did wrong and work the problem for me.
33. find the median of the set of numbers: 2,3,5,6,10 the answer i got for this was the 5 is the median number because i did not have to rearrange no numbers, did i do it right or not.

Ms. Sue
30. Use the Pythagorean Theorem: a^2 + b^2 = c^2
9^2 + 12^2 = c^2
81 + 144 = c^2
225 = c^2
square root of 225 = 15
33. Yes, you did this one right. :)
