I need someone to show me how to work these two problems out.

30. find the hypotenuse of a right triangle whose sides measure 9 and 12: i came up with the answer 15 but i honestly forgot how i got this answer please let me know what i did wrong and work the problem for me.

33. find the median of the set of numbers: 2,3,5,6,10 the answer i got for this was the 5 is the median number because i did not have to rearrange no numbers, did i do it right or not.

  1. 30. Use the Pythagorean Theorem: a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    9^2 + 12^2 = c^2
    81 + 144 = c^2
    225 = c^2
    square root of 225 = 15

    33. Yes, you did this one right. :-)
