Find the unknown value. Then tell whether the lengths form a Pythagorean triple. s=16, t=34This question is from textbook geometry reasoning Answer by stanbon(57282)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The variables r and s represent the lengths of the legs of a right triangle, and t represents the length of the hypotenuse. Find the unknown value. Then tell whether the lengths form a Pythagorean triple. s=16, t=34 ------------ r^2=t^2-s^2 r^2=34^2-16^2 r^2=900 r=30 --------- Cheers, Stan H.
