4.4: THE PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM AND DISTANCE FORMULA
RIGHT TRIANGLES Two sides that form the right angle are called the LEGS The side opposite the right angle is called the HYPOTENUSE
PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM In a right triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the legs.
EXAMPLE 1 Find the length of the missing side.
