A right-angle triangle has a hypotenuse of length and one side of length . If express the length of the third side of the right-angle triangle in terms of .
Express the third side in terms of .
According to the Pythagoras theorem, In a right-angle triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the square of the other two sides.
Here, is the length of the hypotenuse and is one of the other sides of right angle triangle.
Assume the the third side of the triangle.
Find the length of the third side of the right-angle triangle in terms of :
Hence, the third side length is .
