Getting the hypotenuse?

Lets say we had a right triangle that we wanted to find the hypotenuse of. The 2 other sides were 6cm and 3cm. You would square each of these(multiply by themselves). You would then get 36cm2 and 9cm2. You would add these numbers (52) then find the square root of this number. (6.7cm) The answer is 6.7cmThe formula for this is: a2 + b2 =c2Keep in mind that a and b are the other sides and c is the hypotenuse
