Hi. 1. I have a right triangle here. I know that I am to use the Pythagorean Theorem: a^2 + b^2 = c^2. In this case, side a is (x + 4) and b is x. The hypotenuse is 4 + (x + 4) So here we have the equation: (x + 4)^2 + x^2 = 4 + (x + 4)^2. I need to find the length of a (the ...

You say that I can't use a^2 + b^2 = c^2, but that formula is called the Pythagorean theorem. I was instructed to use that formula. Am I misunderstanding what you're saying?

**Algebra**

For #1: When I get √(9y - 196) = -7 can I square each side to get 9y - 196 = 49? Then I can add 196 to both sides. It cancels out on the left side and I have 9y = 245. Then I can divide both sides by 9. I would get y = 27.2. Would that be correct?

**Algebra**

I have a couple questions about # 1. Why can't it be a^2 + B^2 = c^2? I think that's what I'm taught in class. Also, if you square everything, isn't still going to come out the same? If you do something to the entire expression, it doesn't change the value...

1. √(9y - 196) + √196 = √49 My work: I squared all 3 roots and got 9y - 196 + 196 = 49 The - 196 + 196 cancels out and we are left with 9y = 49. divide 49 by 9. = 49/9. I'm pretty sure this is wrong. Can you show me where I messed up? 2. √x(√9...
