ms. p gave us a ? that was a right angle triangle & 1 side was "15ft" and the other side was"9ft".then she told us the answer was "67ft" and she told us we had to figure out how she got the answer.

    What question does "67 feet" answer?

  • geometry -

    If the two sides (not the hypotenuse) are 9 and 15, the hypotenuse is sqrt(9^2 + 15^2) = 17.49 ft.

    If the hypotenuse is 15 and one of the two sides is 9, the other side is sqrt(15^2 - 9^2) = 12 ft.

    67 ft. is not the answer.
