In a right triangle, the sides are related by Pythagorean Theorem, where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the 90° angle). Find the hypotenuse when the other 2 sides’ measurements are 3 feet and 4 feet.

You can say that either a=3 and b=4 or the other way where a=4 and b=3. Then by using the pythagorean theorem which states a^2+b^2=c^2 you will be able to get your answer. So (3)^2+(4)^2=c^2 9+16=c^2 25=c^2 Now by taking the square root of each side you get that c=+ - 5, but since you are dealing with lengths and you can't have a negative length, then c=5.
