    The Pythagorean theorem for the right angle triangle is 

     

    (Hypotenuse)^2 = (Base)^2 + (Perpendicular)^2

    x^2 = 24^2 + 7^2

    x^2 = 576+49

    x^2 = 625

    By taking square root on both sides, we get the value of x

    x = 25

     You can solve that equation by the Pythagorean Theorem: a^2 + b^2 = c^2. The letter "c" is what you are trying to solve. We can replace that with "x" to make it easier.

    Plug in the numbers: 7^2 + 24^2 = x^2

    49 + 576 = x^2

    625 = x^2

    In order to find "x", take the square root of 625, which is equal to 25. 

    Therefore, side "x" is equal to 25.

    X=sqrt(24*24+7*7)=sqrt(625)=  25

    The square root of (24squared + 7squared)

    In a Right-angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides (adjacent and opposite)

    Apply Pythagorean theorem

    x = √(a^2 + b^2)

    x =  √(7^2 + 24^2)

    x =√(625)

    x = 25 Answer//

    use Pythagorean theorem

    a^2+b^2=c^2

    or

    7^2+24^2=x^2

    then solve

    576+49=x^2

    625=x^2

    therefore x=25

    I hope this helps

  • x^2 = 24^2 + 7^2

    x^2 = 576 + 49

    x^2 = 625

    x = 25
