* How far does 2nd base throw to home base ?
The following picture shows the line from 2nd to home making a right triangle.
a2+ b2= c2
(27x27) + (27x27) = c2
729m(squared) + 729m(squared) = c2
The following picture shows a right triangle. Find h/ c .
a2 + b2= c2
(6x6) + (10x10) = c2
36cm(squared) + 100cm(squared)= c2
The following picture shows a right triangle. You are only given r & t. Find s.
a2 + b2 = c2
20(squared) + b2= 52(squared)
(20x20) + b2 = (52x52)
b2= 52(squared) - 20(squared)
b2= 2704- 400
b2= 2304 cm(squared)
✔ b2= ✔2304
The following picture shows a right triangle. You are only given b and c. Find a.
a2 = c2 - b2
a2 = 9(squared) - 4(squared)
a2= 81cm2 - 16cm2
a= 8.06 cm

Questions 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Jack must determine the side length of a right triangle. He decides to draw it, and then measure it, as shown. Do you agree with the method that Jack is using? Explain .
I agree with the method Jack is using, because once he knows what the two side lengths are, he can find the hypotenuse.
Kira calculated the missing side length of the right triangle.
Is Kira correct ? If she is correct, explain how you know. If she is incorrect, explain the correct method.
Kira is not correct, because she forgot to do this part:
194cm(squared) = y2
