### Bruce's Scribepost, Pythagoras

Hello,
Today Mr Harbeck assigned a few of us to make a scribe on one of the seven question. My question was #6.

6. Determine the length of the leg for each right triangle.
A)
One leg=7cm
Second leg=?cm
Hypotenuse=25cm

c(sqrd) - a(sqrd) = b(sqrd)
25cm(sqrd) - 7cm(sqrd) = ?cm(sqrd)
625cm(sqrd) - 49cm(sqrd) = 576cm(sqrd)

square root of 576=24cm
b=24cm
B)
One leg=24cm
Second leg=?cm
Hypotenuse=26cm

t(sqrd) - s(sqrd) = r(sqrd)
26cm(sqrd) - 24cm(sqrd) = ?cm(sqrd)
676cm(sqrd) - 576cm(sqrd) = 100cm(sqrd)

square root of 100=10
r=10cm

1. Good job Bruce! I like how you used lots of colors but you should have showed us what you meant with some pictures. Overall, you did very good!

2. Good work bruce. Next time try to stay awake, not be lazy and PUT SOME PICTURES. Good scribe yo.
