Question:

If the hypotenuse of a right triangle has a value of 5in, and the shortest leg of the triangle has a value of 3in, what is the length of the other leg?

Amara E.
Answer:

This can be solved by using the Pythagorean theorem c^2=a^2+b^2. Since we know c=5, and a=3, we can plug and chug to find the answer, by rearranging the equation to c^2-a^2=b^2. This means 5^2-3^2=b^2. So 25-9=16. Since b^2 is 16, take the square root to find b. This leaves the answer to be 4in.

Question:

Using the equation y=3x+14, find y if x=2.

Amara E.
Answer:

Since the question gives you the value for x, all you have to do is plug it in! y=3(2)+14, which then is simplified to y=6+14, and with simple addition, y=20.
