You can put this solution on YOUR website! For this problem, you would have to use Pythagorean Theorem which states
a and b would be one of the sides either 24 or 10 (you choose). c would be the path or hypotenuse.
1. Plug in 24 and 10 for a and b.
3. Get rid of the square sign on sign by square rooting the other side.
