one side of a right triangle has 2cm less than the hypothuse, and 7cm more than the third side

what is the lenghnt of each side

  • math -

    The one side = s, other side = s-7, hypotenuse = s+2

    Use Pythagorean theorem.

    s^2 + (s-7)^2 = (s+2)^2

    Solve for s and then the other sides.

    I hope this helps.
