algebra II

posted by .

I have been working on this problem for a while and for some reason I don't come up with the answer.


I came up with 2square root 5 please tell me if this is correct.

In a right triangle, Find the length of the side not given b=1, c=square root 10

thank you.

    First, you know the formula is a^2 + b^2 = c^2. Next, substitute the values: a^2 + 1^2 = root 10 ^2
    Do the operations. a^2 + 1 = 10
    Now= a^2 = 10-1
    a^2 = 9
    a = 3
