## Answers

### Complexity=3

Find the value of 'x' using the Pythagorean Theorem.

#ProblemCorrect AnswerYour Answer
1 x =
Solution
a2 + b2 = c2 where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle)
c2 = 32 + 42
c2 = 9 + 16
c2 = 25
c = 5
#ProblemCorrect AnswerYour Answer
2 x =
Solution
a2 + b2 = c2 where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle)
a2 = c2 - b2
a2 = 52 - 42
a2 = 25 - 16
a2 = 9
a = 3

### Complexity=5

Find the value of 'x' using the Pythagorean Theorem.

#ProblemCorrect AnswerYour Answer
1 x =
Solution
a2 + b2 = c2 where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle)
c2 = 92 + 402
c2 = 81 + 1600
c2 = 1681
c = 41
#ProblemCorrect AnswerYour Answer
2 x =
Solution
a2 + b2 = c2 where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle)
c2 = 52 + 122
c2 = 25 + 144
c2 = 169
c = 13

### Complexity=8

Find the value of 'x' using the Pythagorean Theorem.

#ProblemCorrect AnswerYour Answer
1 x =
Solution
a2 + b2 = c2 where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle)
a2 = c2 - b2
a2 = 1002 - 962
a2 = 10000 - 9216
a2 = 784
a = 28
#ProblemCorrect AnswerYour Answer
2 x =
Solution
a2 + b2 = c2 where c is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle)
a2 = c2 - b2
a2 = 452 - 362
a2 = 2025 - 1296
a2 = 729
a = 27
