# In Exercises 3–6, let a and b represent the lengths of the legs, and let c represent the length of the hypotenuse, of a right triangle. Solve for the missing side length. a = 5 ,   b = 12

To determine

To calculate: The length of missing side "c" of right triangle, when a=5 and b=12.

Explanation

Given Information:

The legs of a right triangle are, a=5 and b=12.

Formula used:

From Pythagoras theorem, write the relationship among each side for right triangle.

a2+b2=c2

Here, a and b are the length of legs and c is the length of hypotenuse of right triangle.

Calculation:

From the provided data, draw the right triangle,

By the use of Pythagorean theorem,

a2+b2=c2
