Σελίδα 45 - The hypothenuse of a right-angled triangle may be found by having the other two sides ; thus, the square root of the sum of the squares of the base and perpendicular, will be the hypothenuse. Cor. 2. Having the hypothenuse and one side given to find the other; the square root of the difference of the squares of the hypothenuse and given side will be the required side.
