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
