Question

Which statements are true about the unknown side length in this right triangle? Check all that apply.

A triangle with side StartRoot 13 EndRoot meters and hypotenuse of 6 meters.
The equation a squared + (StartRoot 13 EndRoot) squared = 6 squared can be used to find the unknown length.
The equation (StartRoot 13 EndRoot) squared + b squared + 6 squared can be used to find the unknown length.
The equation (StartRoot 13 EndRoot) squared + 6 squared = c squared can be used to find the unknown length.
The length of the unknown leg is StartRoot 23 EndRoot meters.
The length of the unknown leg is 7 meters.

The true statements are:

1) The equation a squared + (√13) squared = 6 squared can be used to find the unknown length.

2) The length of the unknown leg is √23 meters.

=================================================

Step-by-step explanation:

The hypotenuse of the right triangle = 6

And the length of one leg is √13

using Pythagorean equation: c² = a² + b²

where c is the hypotenuse and a , b are the length of the two legs

So, the third side = $$\sqrt{6^2-(\sqrt{13} )^2} =\sqrt{36-13} =\sqrt{23}$$

So, the true statements are:

1) The equation a squared + (√13) squared = 6 squared can be used to find the unknown length.

2) The length of the unknown leg is √23 meters.
