  1. Assuming the two given points are the endpoints of the hypotenuse,
    length of hypotenuse = √( (4-2)^2 + (-3-3)^2 )
    = √(4 + 36)
    = √40 or 2√10

    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 +
