How do you find the hypotenuse of a right triangle? I don't understand how to find c.

Hi Ashley. Look up "Pythagoras" in our search field for lots of information about this. The short answer is a^{2} + b^{2} = c^{2}, where c is the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle and a and b are the lengths of the other two sides.
