you are obviously studying Pythagoras can you identify the 'hypotenuse' of the flag triangle?

you don't 'do it' - you know it which side is the hypotenuse?

I guess you mean the side joining R & Q (this is normally written as RQ btw) so the pythaogoras equation states that the (hypotenuse) ^2 = sum of t e square of the other 2 sides or c^2 = a^2 + b^c (where c is the hypotenuse) so you know 2 sides (0.6 m and 1 m) can you put them into the equation above?

|dw:1464902694530:dw| use the above diagram and my equation to put the known sides into the equation
