The hypotenuse is the longest side of a triangle.

What is the Pythagorean Theorem?

Also known as Pythagoras' Theorem, the Pythagorean Theorem is an

equation that solves for the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle.

To calculate the hypotenuse, use the pythagorean theorem as follows:

A^{2} + B^{2} = C^{2}

A and B are the lengths of the legs of the triangle. C is the hypotenuse.

Example: A right triangle with a length of Leg A as 50 inches and a

length of Leg B as 50 inches has a hypotenuse of:

50^{2} + 50^{2} = C^{2}

C^{2} = 5000

C = 70.7107 inches
