Jayden and Sheridan both tried to find the missing side of the right triangle. A right triangle is shown. One leg is labeled as 7 centimeters. The hypotenuse is labeled as 13 centimeters.Jayden’s WorkSheridan’s Worka2 + b2 = c2a2 + b2 = c272 + 132 = c272 + b2 = 13249 + 169 = c249 + b2 = 169218 = c2b2 = 120Square root 218 equals square root c squared.Square root b squared equals square root 120.14.76 ≈ cb ≈ 10.95Is either of them correct?

    Answer:

    WOW that’s tough to read all squished together!!!

    Jayden and Sheridan both tried to find the missing side of the right triangle. A right triangle is shown. One leg is labeled as 7 centimeters. The hypotenuse is labeled as 13 centimeters.

    Jayden’s Work

    Sheridan’s Work

    a2 + b2 = c2

    a2 + b2 = c

    272 + 132 = c272 + b2 = 132

    49 + 169 = c

    249 + b2 = 169

    218 = c2b2 = 120

    Square root 218 equals square root c squared.

    Square root b squared equals  

    square root 120.

    14.76 ≈ cb ≈  

    10.95Is either of them correct?  

    ***************************************************

    In a right triangle

    hypotenuse^2 = leg1 ^2 + leg2^2

    13^2 = 7^2 + leg2^2

    leg2^2 = 120

    leg 2 = 10.9544511501

    Basically, whoever said 10.95 is correct.
