If side a = 6, side b = 9, what is

*the length of the hypotenuse*of this right triangle?If side a = 6, side b = 9, what is *the length of the hypotenuse* of this right triangle?

Detailed Explanation

According to the Pythagorean theorem, the hypotenuse squared is equal to the sum of the two perpendicular sides squared: \( c^2= a^2+ b^2 = 6^2 + 9^2 = 117\)

\(c= \sqrt{117}\).

\(c= \sqrt{117}\).
