 Question 622767: I need to find all three sides of a right triangle (use the pythagorean therum to make a quadratic equation then solve) Side A-X Side B-X+1 Side C-X+2Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi, Right Triangle with Sides x, (x+1) and (x+2)... Applying the Pythagorean Theorem x^2 + (x+1)^2 = (x+2)^2 x^2 + x^2 + 2x + 1 = x^2 + 4x + 4 x^2 -2x - 3 = 0 factoring (x-3)(x+1) = 0 x = 3 (throwing out negative solution -1 for length) Sides are 3, 4, 5 ```
