A right triangle has a base leg measuring sqrt(19) mm and an altitude leg of 9 mm. How long is its hypotenuse?

Pythagorean theorem

( sqrt19)^2 + 9^2 = hypotenuse ^2 solve for hypotenuse.......= ........

Alrighty, @ElectricPavlov I guess you were feeling lazy cuz you don't usually do this so I'll finish for you ig.

sqrt(19)^2+9^2 = c^2

81+19 = c^2

100=c^2

c = 10

Nope , not lazy....just not GIVING answers if I can avoid it by havibg the questioner participate a little more than just submitting a question by doing SOME of the calculation after a hint or two.....If they need more help, they should ask further.....

I do not just want to do homework for folks.....
