Pythagoras’ Theorem Formula
`a^2``+``b^2``=``c^2``a` and `b` are the two sides, and `c` is the hypotenuseUse the Pythagorean Theorem Formula to solve for `c``a^2``+``b^2` `=` `c^2` Pythagoras’ Theorem Formula `30.9^2``+``27.9^2` `=` `c^2` Plug in the known lengths `954.81+778.41` `=` `c^2` Evaluate `sqrt(c^2)` `=` `sqrt1733.22` Take the square root of both sides `c` `=` `41.6 \text(units)` Rounded to one decimal place `c=41.6 \text(units)`

Question 3 of 4
3. Question
One wall is `16 m` tall while the other is `10 m` tall. They stand `8m` apart on a horizontal ground. A roof rests on top of both walls. Find the length of the roof. `c=` (10)` \text(m)`

Pythagoras’ Theorem Formula
`a^2``+``b^2``=``c^2``a` and `b` are the two sides, and `c` is the hypotenuseLabelling each length of the triangle
First, notice that the horizontal ground measuring `8 \text(m)` is the same length as the horizontal side of the triangle.`a` `=` `8` Next, find the length of the side `b`. Do this by subtracting the lengths of the walls.`b` `=` `1610` `b` `=` `6` Finally, use the Pythagorean Theorem Formula to solve for `c``a^2``+``b^2` `=` `c^2` Pythagoras’ Theorem Formula `8^2``+``6^2` `=` `c^2` Plug in the known lengths `64+36` `=` `c^2` Evaluate `sqrt(c^2)` `=` `sqrt100` Take the square root of both sides `c` `=` `10 \text(m)` `c=10 \text(m)` 
Question 4 of 4
4. Question
A thin piece of wire `41` metres long is attached to the top of a flag pole. The other end is fixed to the ground at a distance of `15` metres from the base of the flag pole. Find the height of the flag pole.The given measurements are in metresRound your answer to 2 decimal places `h=` (38.16)` \text(m)`
