Find side of a right triangle using the Pythagorean Theorem.

- What is the Pythagorean Theorem?
- If a right triangle has one leg of length 5 inches and a hypotenuse of 8 inches, what is the length of the other side?
- If two legs of a right triangle are 3 feet and 5 feet, how can you use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of the hypotenuse?
- How can you use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of a missing side of a right triangle?
- What does a^2 + b^2 = c^2 mean?
- How do you solve x^2 + 5^2 = 8^2?
- How do you solve 3^2 + 5^2 = h^2?

This lesson explains the Pythagorean Theorem and how it can be used to find missing lengths of right triangles. A couple of example problems are shown in this lesson and all steps involved are explained. This is a great introduction to the Pythagorean Theorem.
