Pythagorean Theorem Formula Hypotenuse. It is also sometimes called the pythagorean theorem. Pythagoras theorem is basically used to find the length of an unknown side and angle of a triangle.

The longer leg is 7 cm longer than the shorter leg. Use the pythagorean theorem to solve for the hypotenuse. # this program will take 2 numbers from the user and # find the hypotenuse using the pythagorean theore…

The two legs meet at a 90° angle and the hypotenuse is the longest side of the right triangle and is the side opposite the right angle.

(hypotenuse) 2 = (height) 2 + (base) 2 or c 2 = a 2 + b 2. Consider a right triangle abc as shown in the figure above. A right triangle consists of two legs and a hypotenuse. The two legs meet at a 90° angle and the hypotenuse is the longest side of the right triangle and is the side opposite the right angle. This type of problem is easy to solve if we know how. Take the square root of the result to get the hypotenuse.
