During the half-time show of a football game, a trumpet player and a tuba player start at the same position on the field. The trumpet player then marches 74.8 ft directly toward the goal line, and the tuba player marches directly toward the sideline. At the end of their march, the tuba player is 93.5 ft from the trumpet player. How far did the tuba player march?

-----In the picture it formed a triangle. I think its a pythagorean thereom problem but its not coming out correctly. I put 74.8 and 93.5 as the legs. PLEASE HELP!!!

    if you labeled the legs as you say, you are assuming that the tuba player marched 93.5 feet toward the sideline.

    Bzzzt, but thanks for playing.

    Label the hypotenuse 93.5 and I think you will get better results.
