If you know The Pythagorean Thereom, you know that a^2+b^2=c^2 where A and B are the two shorter sides, and C is the longest side. So if you draw out the right triangle, the side lengths of A and B will be 10 and 10, and you just have to plug in the values, 10^2+10^2=100+100=200, but you have to find the square root of 200, and \(\sqrt200\) simplifies to \(10\sqrt2\)
