The shorter leg on the triangle is 3 units long. So the area of a square with that side length is ___________.

The longer leg on the triangle is 4 units long. So the area of a square with that side length is _________.

Therefore, the hypotenuse is 5 units long. So the area of a square with that length is ________.

1: The shorter leg on the triangle is 3 units long. So the area of a square with that side length is ___________.

A square has equal lengths so a square with that side lengths is 3x3 = **9**

2: The longer leg on the triangle is 4 units long. So the area of a square with that side length is _________.

Same thing, plug the side length to the square. 4x4 = **16**

3:** **Therefore, the hypotenuse is 5 units long. So the area of a square with that length is ________.

I'll let you try this one. (Hint): (length^2)
