Math help Please

Kevin has a triangle table cloth with side lengths of 5 inches, 12 inches. He wants to cover a right angles triangle table with table cloth. Find if the cloth is appropriate for the table.

Can someone please help me. We are doing Pythagorean Theorem - I found the third side to be 11 inches and my answer would be yes?

  1. well, a common right triangle is 5-12-13.

    Not sure just how things are set up, since you just give two sides of the table cloth and don't say anything about the third side.

  2. Thats because we are only given the story above and we are supposed to use the Pythagorean Theorem to figure out the third side. And then decide if the table cloth will be appropriate...I gave you everything I know.
