What is the length of the hypotenuse if a triangles legs are 9 and 8?
9 squared is 81. 8 squared is 64.
81 + 64 = 145
It's in between 12 and 13.
closer to 12 since 12 squared is 144 and 145 is only 1 away.
NOTE: Only works if it is a right triangle.

all sides of a rhombus are equal in length. the diagonals of the rhombus intersect at a 90 degree angle. the diagonals and the sides of the rhombus form right triangles. one leg of these right triangles is equal to 8 cm in length. the other leg of these right triangles is equal to 6 cm in length that would be half the length of each diagonal. the sides of the triangle form the hypotenuse… Read More
How can you Find the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle with legs of lengths 8 and 15 If necessar?
using the pythagorean thereom. a^2 + b^2 = c^2 in which a and b are your legs and c is your hypotenuse 8^2 + 15^2 = c^2 289=c^2 17 is the hypotenuse
17 units using Pythagoras' theorem
Use Pythagoras: 82+92 = 145 and the square root of 145 is about 12.04159456 length of hypotenuse = 12 units to 2 significant figures
If a right triangle has legs of length 8 and 15 then you know the length of the hypotenuse is the square root of 82 plus 152 which equals 17?
True! Apex =)
a2 + b2 = c2 82 + 152 = c2 64 + 225 = c2 289 = c2 square root of 289 is 17. The length of the hypotenuse is 17.
The hypotenuse is: about 12.81
I assume you mean a right triangle. Use the Pythagorean theorem. a2 + b2 = c2 c2 = 152 + 82 c = sqrt(152 + 82) c(hypotenuse) = 17 ==============
The length is 10 STEP by STEP: Pythagorean Theorem: c2=a2+b2 let c=hypotenuse and let a = leg with the length of 6 and let b = leg with the length of 8 c2=62+82 c2=36+64 c2=100 (get the square root of both sides) c=10 (square root of a 100 is actually positive 10 and negative 10, however, since a length or any size cannot be a negative number, then the only answer is positive 10) The… Read More
A right triangle has a hypotenuse of length 15 and a leg of length 8 What is the area of the triangle?
A right triangle with a hypotenuse of length 15 and a leg of length 8 has an area of: 50.75 units2
Isosceles triangles have two sides which are the same length and two angles which are equal. So if your right triangle has one side of length 2 feet, which is not the hypotenuse, then the remaining side must also be 2 feet long. We know that the square of the length of the hypotenuse is equal to the squares of the other two sides. 2 squared is 4. So the squares of the two sides… Read More
What is the length of the hypotenuse of the right triangle that has a base of 5 and a side leg of 8?
If the sides of right angle triangle are 8 units and 15 units then the hypotenuse will be 17 units in length.
Using Pythagoras' theorem its hypotenuse works out as 17 mm
root square of 73
A right triangle has a hypotenuse of 10 cm and one leg that measures What is the length of the other leg?
Without knowing the measurement of one of its legs it's impossible to work out using Pythagoras' theorem. So from an experienced guess the two legs could be 8 cm and 6 cm with an hypotenuse of 10 cm.
The hypotenuse of an isosceles right triangle is 9 feet longer than either of its legs. what the exact length of each side?
Each leg is 21.73 feet and the Hypotenuse is 30.73 feet. (0.73 feet is a whisker over 8¾ inches)
A-squared plus B-squared = C-squared 36+64=100 The hypotenuse is 10 (the square root of 100). BTW this is the classic "3,4,5" right triangle.
The length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is 10 and the length of one leg is 8 what is the length of the other leg?
What length of a leg of a right triangle if the other leg is 8 feet long and the hypotenuse is 10 feet long.?
Using Pythagoras' theorem for right angle triangles then the other leg is 6 feet long
The word hypotenuse implies this is a right triangle. An isosceles right triangle has sides of 1, 1, and sqrt(2), or multiples of those. So the hypotenuse = 5*sqrt(2), which is approximately 7.07 feet or about 7 ft and 7/8 inch.
The legs of a right triangle are 8 and 9 feet long respectively What is the length of the hypotenuse?
The hypotenuse is about 12.04 units. To solve this problem, the Pythagorean Theorem will come into play. The basis of the Pythagorean Theorem is a2 + b2 = c2 Where a and b are the legs of a right triangle and c is the hypotenuse. So in this case, we would use 8 and 9 in place of a and b, respectively, resulting in 82 + 92 = c2 which converts into 64 + 81… Read More
Using the (a^2)+(b^2) = (c^2) formula, the hypotenuse is 10cm.
What is the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle where the two sides are 8 units and 15 units long?
17 units in length
the answer is 8
The hypotenuse is 29.12 inches long. (rounded)
What is the radius of a circle that has a right angle triangle located on its entire diameter with legs of 6 and 8 cm?
The diameter of the circle will also be the triangle's hypotenuse so use Pythagoras theorem to find the hypotenuse's length and half the length which will result as a radius of 5 cm.
If the legs have length L, then 1/2*L*L = 32 so that L = 8 cm. And the hypotenuse is 8*sqrt(2) = 11.31 cm.
The length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is 10 and the lenth of one leg is 8 what is the length of the other leg?
square root of 46
8*sqrt(2) The diagonal of the square would be the hypotenuse of the right triangle formed by two of the sides of the square.
do you have an angle measure? (if it is an equilateral triangle all legs will be 8 but i don't think this applies in your case)
Neither the dimensions nor the area can be determined with only the length of the hypotenuse. In order to do so, you need either the length of one of the legs or an angle - or some other information that will enable to to calculate it. The triangle will have any area greater than 0 cm2 and less than or equal to 16 cm2, dependent upon the two legs of the triangle which will be… Read More
The hypotenuse of a right triangle with legs of 8 and 15 centimeters is the square root of (8 squared plus 15 squared), which is 17.
What is the perimeter of a rhombus if it has 2 diagonals. length of A diagonal is 20 cm and B diagonal is 16 cm?
Diags of rhombus form 4 Pythagorean triangles. If these triangles sides are 10 and 8 cm then hypotenuses would be 12.8 cm. Each hypotenuse is one side of the rhombus so perimeter would be 51.2 cm to nearest mm.
Use trigonometry to find the leg sizes which are 6.92820323 and 4 units in length Check using Pythagoras' theorem: 6.9282032232+42 = 64 and the square root of this is 8 which is the length of the hypotenuse.
How long is the shorter leg of a right triangle with a side of 8 inches and a hypotenuse of 40 inches?
A right triangle with a hypotenuse of 40 inches and a side of 8 inches has a leg length of 39.19 inches so the shorter leg IS 8 inches.
The length of one leg of a right triangle is 8 ft The length of the hypotenuse is 2 feet loonger than the other leg Find the length of the hypotenuse and the other leg?
Suppose the other leg is x. Then the hypotenuse is x+2 So, by Pythagoras, (x+2)2 = 82 + x2 or, x2 + 4x + 4 = 64 + x2 so 4x = 60 so x = 15 and the hypotenuse is 17
You need to use the pythagorean theorem to answer this question. a^2+b^2=c^2 In this case, you know the length of 2 legs. (a and b)... you are trying to solve for c ( the hypotenuse)... so.. 6^2+8^2=c^2... solve for c... 36+64=100... take the square root of 100, and c=10!
