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.
