If the lengths of two sides of a right triangle are 33 ft and 56 ft, then the length of the hypotenuse must be

  • geometry -

    Use the Pythagorean Theorem, which states that
    Hypothenuse² = a²+b²
    where a and are sides adjacent to the right angle.
    so in this case,
    H²=33²+56²
    Solve for H.
