# Two Geometry Problems about Triangles

As far as I know, nobody on this website has ever done two or more questions in the same post, so I'll be the first to do so.

The first question is: one leg of a right triangle measures 9 centimeters and the other measures 6 centimeters. Find the length of the hypotenuse in simplest radical form.

The second question is: if the hypotenuse of a right triangle measures 29 feet and one leg measures 21 feet, how long is the other leg of the right triangle?

LOL!!!.....you are definitely NOT the first....!!!

First one

Hyp = sqrt ( 9^2 + 6^2)  = sqrt ( 81 + 36)  =  sqrt ( 117) = sqrt ( 13 * 9) = 3sqrt (13) cm

Second

Leg  =  sqrt (29^2  - 21^2 )  = sqrt ( 841 - 441)  = sqrt (400)  =  20 ft
