Donna's TV screen is 20 inches long. If the diagonal measures 25 inches, how long is the width of Donna's TV? Practice the Pythagorean Theorem 20 inches 25 inches ? inches a 2 + b 2 = c 2 20 2 + b 2 = 25 2 400 + b 2 = 625 b 2 = 225 b = 15 The width of the TV is 15 inches.

Town A is 9 miles north of Town B. Town C is 12 miles east of Town A. A road connects towns B and C directly. Find the length of this road. Practice the Pythagorean Theorem Town A Town B Town C 9 miles 12 miles ? miles a 2 + b 2 = c 2 9 2 + 12 2 = c 2 81 + 144 = c 2 225 = c 2 15 = c The length of the road is 15 miles.
