Use the Pythagorean Relationship to find the unknown area of each square:

a) Legs: 20cm2

32cm2

Hypotenuse: ?

In order to find the area of the square attached to the hypotenuse, we have to use the

*This means we have to find the sum of the area of the squares attached to the legs of the right triangle. (The hypotenuse is the diagonal line connecting the straight lines of the triangle, called legs).*

__Pythagorean relationship__.20+32=52

The area of the square attached to the hypotenuse is 52cm2.

b) Legs: 100mm2

576mm2

Hypotenuse: ?

100+576=676

The area of the square attached to the hypotenuse is 676mm2.

c) Leg: 25cm2

hypotenuse: 90cm2

2nd leg: ?

90-25=65.

The area of the square attached to the 2nd leg is 65cm2.

d) Legs: 12cm2

12cm2

Hypotenuse: ?

12+12=24

The area of the square attached to the hypotenuse is 24cm2.

THANKS FOR READING! PLEASE COMMENT! (VOTE 4 LAURA!)

I really like how you told us how to use The Pythagorean Relationship. I also like how you wrote down the question and answered it in a different color. Well done!
