Hypotenuse squared = base squared + height squared.

H^2 = 5^2 + 4^2
H^2 = 25 + 16
H^2 = 41
H = sqrt(41)

Hypotenuse = about 6.4 feet

SOURCE: trying to find the hypotenuse of a trangle

A squared + B squared = C squared
15 squared + 15 squared = C Squared
225 + 225 = c squared
450 = c squared
the square root of 450 is 21.21320433

What is the length of a hypotonuse triangle with legs being 4 and 3


a^2 + b^2 = c^2
a squared + b squared = c squared, where c is the length of the hypotenuse, and a and b are the lengths of the other two sides in a right-angled triangle.

Formula to calculate hyportenuse


The formula to calculate the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is a^2 + b^2 = c^2 or in words, a squared plus b squared is equal to c squared. The most common mistake is that students make the hypotenuse a squared or b squared. The hypotenuse has to be c squared. Thus, when figuring out the sides of a right-angled triangle, always make sure the hypotenuse is the longest side.

For example, a triangle with sides of length 3 and 4, calculate the hypotenuse. Let a be 3 and b be 4. 3^2 + 4^2 = c^2 or 9+16 = c^2, or 25 = c^2. Now take the square root of both sides and we get c = 5.

Calculate hypotenuse


"Hypotenuse" implies a right angle triangle is wanted here. With Pythagoras' Theorem it is always good to look first for a 3-4-5 pattern, the simplest ratio, although a right angle triangle easily can be other ratios too.

24 x 32 is (3 x 8) x (4 x 8) so it is a 3-4-5 triangle after all, and the hypotenuse is then 5 x 8 = 40

Or, you could calculate SQRT (24^2 + 32^2) = 40

WHAT IS THE HYPOTAMUM OF A RIGHT ANGLE TRIANGLE 180CM X 180CM


I think you're asking about a "hypotenuse", not a "hypotamum". The hypotenuse of a right triangle with those dimensions would be 180 x the square root of 2, or approximately 254.52cm.

Calculate hypotenuse


in building terms there is the 3, 4, 5 rule, which allows you to determine a perfect right angle. This is from the Pythagoras theorem which says - the square on the hypotenuse equals the sum of the squares on the other two sides.... so to calculate the hypotenuse we square 3 and 4 to get 9 and 16 respectively. Adding these give 25. Getting the square root of 25 gives 5 which is the dimension of the hypotenuse...
Any combination of 3/4/5 works - so 6/8/10 is also valid.
Hope this helps.

Find the value of x in the 45-45-90 triangle. write your answer in racial form


in a 45-45-90 triangle, the lengths of the sides are in a ration, 1:1:√2, so if you have one side of the triangle, such as a leg, with the value in the ratio of 1, simply multiply that given number by √2 to get the hypotenuse, if you're instead given the hypotenuse, simply divide by √2 to get the answer for one of the legs. The legs of a 45-45-90 triangle are equal.
I hope this helps!

If right triangle is measure of hyp=1 base=1 what is the adjacent


If the base is one, and it is a right angle triangle, then the hypotenuse MUST be greater than one, because it is the sum of the squares of the other two sides, hence one squared, which is one, plus another number squared, which is some positive number, so the sum is greater than one.

So, if the hyp is one and the base is one, the hyp is not actually a hyp, because it is not a right angle triangle.

What a strange question to ask on a PC forum!

Find length of right triangle given one angle an one length


Formulas relating to right angled triangles are:
Sine = perpendicular divided by hypotenuse
Cosine = base divided by hypotenuse
Tangent = perpendicular divided by base
Sine Tangent and Cosine functions are all available in Excel

Can you gave me a example of a right triangle problems?


In right triangle we are making 90 degree angle triangle, we can have problem for finding hypotenuse or finding sin or cos values of the side of the triangle. For ex,Find out the hypotenuse,sin and cos value of the right triangle with base 4 cm and perpendicular 3 cm Solution:Hypotenuse = SQRT(4^2 + 3^2) =SQRT(4*4 + 3*3) =SQRT(16+9)=SQRT(25)=5 cm For right triangle, sin(x)=3/5=0.6 cos(x)=4/5 =0.8

Trigonometric function


The 3 trig functions most commonly
used in triangle calculations are


sine = Opposite/Hypotenuse Co secant = Hypotenuse/Opposite

Cosine = Adjacent/Hypotenuse The reciprocals are Secant = Hypotenuse/Adjacent

Tangent = Opposite/ Adjacent Cotangent = Adjacent/Opposite


Hope this helps Loringh
