Look up Pythagoras' Theorem.

 

In a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. 

 

In this triangle,                x2  =  232 – 162   

 

                                       x2  =  529 – 256   

 

                                       x    =  sqrt(273)  

 

                                       x    =  16.5
