## What is the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle if its legs measures 9 cm and 40 cm?

Step-by-step explanation: Let the given right triangle be ABC, then ∠B=90° and AB=40cm and BC=9cm. Therefore, the value of the hypotenuse of the given right triangle will be 41 cm.

## What is the hypotenuse of 9 and 12?

1 Answer. The length of the hypotenuse is 15 feet.

## What is the hypotenuse leg Theorem?

The Hypotenuse-Leg Theorem states that two right triangles are congruent if and only if the hypotenuse and a leg of one right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and a leg of the other right triangle.

## How do you find the b2 in the Pythagorean Theorem?

To find b: using Pythagorean theorem,

- find the square value of side c.
- find the square value of side a.
- Subtract c^2 from a^2.
- Find the root square value of the difference is the value of b.

## Is c2 always the hypotenuse?

The Pythagorean Theorem is a formula that gives a relationship between the sides of a right triangle The Pythagorean Theorem only applies to RIGHT triangles. NOTE: The side “c” is always the side opposite the right angle. Side “c” is called the hypotenuse. The sides adjacent to the right angle are named “a” and “b”.

## What is the theorem of 45 45 90 degree?

The 45°-45°-90° right triangle is half of a square. This is because the square has each angle equal to 90°, and when it is cut diagonally, the one angle remains as 90°, and the other two 90° angles bisected (cut into half) and become 45° each.

## Which is a true statement about 45 45 90 Triangle?

In a 45-45-90 triangle, the hypotenuse is times as long as one of the legs.

## How do you find the legs of a 30 60 90 Triangle?

In any 30-60-90 triangle, you see the following: The shortest leg is across from the 30-degree angle, the length of the hypotenuse is always double the length of the shortest leg, you can find the long leg by multiplying the short leg by the square root of 3.
