Pythagorean Theorem: Week 2 Missing Leg
We know most of the side lengths for each island, but our measurologists always seem to miss one!
Today we're going to find the missing side length of my home island "Cypria"
Welcome to Shape Land where all the islands are perfectly formed geometric shapes
Cypria is a right triangle. The hypotenuse is 15 miles long and the 1st leg is 12 miles long. Can you find out how long the other leg is?
a^2 + b^2 = c^212^2 + b^2 = 15^2144 + b^2 = 225-144 -144b^2 = 81b = 9
Yay! You did it! The missing leg is 9 miles long!
