# What is the length of side c in right triangle if side a is 4cm and side b is 3cm?

From the Pythagorean Theorem: c^2 = a^2 + b^2. So,

c = √(a^2 + b^2) substitute the given values:

c = √(4^2 + 3^2)

c = √(16 + 9)

c = √25

**c = 5** (since the length is always positive)

One of the Pythagorean triples is 3,4,5. So, if you know all the Pythagorean triples, you don't need to do the computations above.

The Pythagorean triple: A set of three positive integers a, b, and c such that a^2 + b^2 = c^2. Pythagorean triples that have greatest common divisor equal to 1 include the following: {3, 4, 5}, {5,12, 13}, {8, 15, 17}, {7, 24, 25}, and {20, 21, 29}.

### What is perimeter of 9cm x 3cm?

if you have a box that is 9cm long and 3cm wide then you would say width + length + width + length because the side opposite from 3cm is also 3cm and the side opposite 9cm is also 9cm. so you would add: 9cm+9cm+3cm+3cm = 24cm if you have a box that is 9cm long and 3cm wide then you would say width + length + width + length because the side opposite from…

### What is the length of the 3rd side if side 1 equals 3cm side 2 equals 4cm In a right-angled triangle?

In a right triangle, C2 = A2 + B2 That means that the square of the length of the longest side (called the "hypotenuse") is equal to the sum of the squares of the two shorter sides. So in order to find the length of the longest side, you square one side, then square the second side, add the two together, and take the square root of the sum. Now that you know that, you're…

### The difference between the length of the hypotenuse and the length of the next longest side of a right triangle is 3cm The difference between the lengths of the two perpendicular sidesis3cm3lengths?

Just use the Pythagorean Theorem. A^2+B^2=C^2. Let the shortest side be have length A=x. Then the next shortest is B=(x+3), and the hypotenuse is C=(x+6). Insert these into the equation, and solve for x. You will get x=9 (or, x=-3, which you can throw out, because it doesn't make sense). So, the three side lengths are 9 cm, 12 cm, and 15 cm
