To solve this equation you need to use the pythagorean theorem which states that a^2+b^2=c^2 where c is the hypotenuse (the longest side). If c is the hypotenuse then you would do 9+16=c^2. Therefore you would find the square root of 25 which is 5. Therefore, if the unknown is the hypotenuse, your answer is 5!

*note: x^2 is equal to x squared
