## Algebra 1: Common Core (15th Edition)

The legs are 2.5 and 6. You have to find the hypotenuse using $a^{2}$+$b^{2}$=$c^{2}$. Plug in the legs for A and B: $a^{2}$+$b^{2}$=$c^{2}$ $2.5^{2}$+$6^{2}$=$c^{2}$ -simplify exponents- 42.25=$c^{2}$ -find the square root of 42.25 to solve for c- $6.5=c$ The hypotenuse is 6.5.
