Need Geometry Help!!!!!! VERY Urgent! Answered
My school thought it would be a good idea to give me 3 massive projects all due in teh same date (2 days) I finished an enlgish project that involved a table with 300 words and theire meanings and stuff.
Now I'm down to a geometry project, using the Pythagorean theorem (did I spell that right?). The problem is such:
In the triangle ABC, rectangle in C (C=90 o). a=15 units and c=17 units. Unit=1/2 centimeter
Use the theorem to find the third side.
Well, Im a bit stumped, could anyone help me here? At least how to start it. (As far as i know, the Pythagorean theorem states that a2 = b2 + c2)
