Question: how do you find the hypotenuse of a right triangle?Hi Phillipe,
One of the most famous theorems on mathematics is the Theorem of Pythagoras. This theorem tells you the relationship among the three sides of a right triangle. In a right triangle, the side opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse.
If the lengths of the sides of a right triangle are a, b and c where c is the length of the hypotenuse as in the diagram above, then the Theorem of Pythagoras says that
