The hypotenuse of a triangle with legs of 35 and 68 is: 76.48

Only a right triangle has a hypotenuse. An isosceles triangle can be a right triangle but it doesn't have to be. If it's not, then it doesn't have a hypotenuse.

The hypotenuse of right triangle of 300Cm and 400Cm is: 500 cm

By definition, the hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle in a right angled triangle. Therefore, a hypotenuse does not exist as one of the three sides in a non-right angled triangle.

The length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle with legs of 7 cm and 24 cm is: 25 cm

You can't as there is no hypotenuse in an equilateral triangle. The hypotenuse is the side of a triangle which is opposite a right angle (90°); all angles in an equilateral triangle are 60°.

If it has no right angles, it is not a right triangle and therefore you cannot name a hypotenuse of that triangle. Which implies you cannot find that side's measure.

First of all, you have to make sure that it's a RIGHT triangle. That means that one of the angles in the triangle is 90 degrees. If not, then it's not a right triangle, and it doesn't have a hypotenuse. If it IS a right triangle, then the longest side is the hypotenuse.

The same way that you find the hypotenuse in the case of integers or decimals. If a triangle has a right triangle, use Pythagoras' Theorem.

It is the longest side of a right angle triangle.

No dimensions have been given but to find the hypotenuse of a right angle triangle use Pythagoras' theorem.

For a right angle triangle:- hypotenuse = adjacent/cosine or hypotenuse = opposite/sine

The sine of an angle in a right triangle is opposite/hypotenuse, where opposite is the only side that is not adjacent to the angle you want to find the sine of, and the hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle in the triangle. Just find opposite/hypotenuse.
