Find the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle with legs of 9 cm and 12 cm.

a) 8 cm
b) 21 cm
c) 15 cm
d) 225 cm

  • math -

    Use the pythagorean theorem:
    c^2 = a^2 + b^2
    where
    c = hypotenuse
    a = one leg
    b = the other leg
    In the problem,
    a = 9
    b = 12
    Now solve for c using the equation above.
