The Pythagorean theorem states that the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is the square root of the sum of the squares of the other two sides.[(24 in)^2 + (7 in)^2]^(1/2) = 25 in

7.07 inches.

Using Pythagoras' theorem it is 2 inches

Using the Pythagorean triple 3, 4, 5 we say that the hypotenuse is 5 inches.

A right triangle with a leg length of 48 inches and a hypotenuse of 80 inches has a third leg of: 64 inches.

Angles are not measured in inches, they are measured in degrees. It appears you may be asking about a RIGHT triangle of which two sides measure 4 inches and 5 inches. In such a case, if the hypotenuse measures 5 inches, the third side would measure 3 inches....a 3,4,5 right triangle.

Use a "three four five" triangle. Having one leg measure exactly three inches, the other leg exactly four inches, and the hypotenuse measure exactly five inches will yield a ninety degree angle. If you are drawing out the triangle, it may be easier to measure a three inch line using a straightedge and then use a compass to find the point of intersection for the other leg and the hypotenuse.

If one leg of triangle is 6 inches and the other leg is 78 inches, the angles are:4.399 degrees85.6 degrees

The length of the hypotenuse = √(4^2 + 6^2) = √52 ≈ 7.21 in
