    Time for the Pythagorean theorem, since we're dealing with a right triangle here.

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    a^2 + 28^2 = 35^2

    a^2 + 784 = 1225

    a^2 = 1225 - 784

    a^2 = 441
    a = 21

    Thank you Ms. Sue, I can now understand what it was I was looking for. I kept thinking square and not seeing I was actually measuring a right triangle. Thanks again!
