 Question 514016: The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 15 cm and one of its legs is 11 cm . What is the measurement of the other leg ?Answer by 10301650(32)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!c^2=a^2+b^2 --> FORMULA c (hypotenuse)= 15 a= 11 b= ? -----: you need to find the b. now, you need to transpose the a to the other side to solve for the other leg of the triangle which is the b. c^2-a^2=b^2 . 15^2-11^2=b^2 . 225-121=b^2 . 104=b^2 . sqrt(104)= sqrt(b^2) . 10.2= b (ANSWER)
