The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 50 millimeters long. one leg of the right triangle is 30 millimeters long. what is the length of the other leg

40 millimetres

[tex]a^2 + b^2 = c^2\\\\30^2 +b^2= 50^2\\\\b^2 = 50^2 - 30^2\\\\c = \sqrt{1600}\\\\c =40[/tex]

The length of the other leg is 40 millimeters.

40 millimeterss. good luck

C. 40

30x30=900

40x40=1600

total of 2500 take the square root and your left with 50 so everything balances out

First. we use the Pythagorean theorem:

[tex]a {}^{2} + b {}^{2} = c {}^{2}[/tex]

Add the numbers in

[tex]{30}^{2} + {b}^{2} = {50}^{2}[/tex]

start simplifying

[tex]{b}^{2} = 1600[/tex]

[tex]b = 40[/tex]

So, the leg has a length of 40 mm.

it is 40 millimetres.

hope it helps.

The answer is 40ml

I had this question 😀

the answer is 40 millimeters

H2=p2+b2

(50)2=(30)2+p2

2500=900+p2

40mm=other leg

Hope this answer helps pls mark me as brainliest ..

Hey there,Lets solve this problem together.

We know that the hypotenuse of a right triangle is 50 millimeters long. One leg of the right triangle is 30 millimeters long.

Hypotenuse = c²

= 50

α² = 30

-------------- Calculations

[tex]\alpha^2 + \beta^2 = c^2[/tex]

[tex]30^2 + \beta ^2 = c^2[/tex]

[tex]\beta ^2 = c^2(50) - a^2(30)[/tex]

[tex]cb = \sqrt{1600}[/tex]

[tex]C = 40[/tex]
