Round to the nearest tenth, if necessary.Found 2 solutions by dolly, jayanthihemkos@yahoo.com:Answer by dolly(163)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is 24 meters length of one of its legs is 12 meters By Pythagorean theorem,the length of the other sideis: = sqrt[hyp^2 - side^2] = sqrt[24^2 - 12^2] = sqrt(576 - 144) = sqrt(432) = 20.8 Thus the length of the other leg = 20.8 meters Answer by jayanthihemkos@yahoo.com(87)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Length of the hypotenuse is 24m Length of one of the hpotenuse is 12 m length of the other side is? By applying pythagores theorem we have other side = sqr root of( 24 square-12 square) = sqr root of (576- 144) = sqr root of (432) = 20.78
