Pythagoras' theorem

To find the side lengths and hypotenuse of a right angle triangle.

Given the lengths of two sides of a right triangle, you can find the length of the other side.

Yes.

If it's a right angle triangle then use Pythagoras' theorem to find its various lengths.

It depends on what x is and what information you have. For example, if no side lengths are known, the Pythagorean theorem is not going to be any use!

yes. you can use trigonometry but phytagoreans theorem is faster and easier

Use Pythagoras' theorem if you know any two lengths of the triangle

In geometry and other forms of advanced math it is important to understand the angles in objects. To find a right triangle enter the lengths of the three sides into the formula for the Pythagorean Theorem.

Providing that it is a right angle triangle then use Pythagoras; theorem:- a2+b2 = c2 where a and b are the lengths of the sides and c is the hypotenuse

to find if the triangle is right or find missing angles. Ex: a2+b2=c2. Lengths of a triangle are 13, 10 and X. 13 is the hypotenuse so you plug it into the c2 part

A right triangle has one right angle and two acute angles. Right triangles have a hypotenuse and also two legs. You can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the hypotenuse, or the two legs of the right triangle, as long as you have the side lengths of the other two sides on the right triangle.
