When Billy opened his lunch he had a triangle cheez it. He wanted to know the hypotenuse. I told him that he would need to use the pythagorean theorem. He said he doesn't know how to do that. I said i will show him.
He said the it was 10 cm tall and 6 cm long and he wanted to know how to find the hypotenuse. I said that you need to find 10*10 and 6*6.
You add them and you get 136. You need to find the square root of 136 which is 11.7, so the hypotenuse is 11.7
