Mathematics 114583:

A rectangular window in Jim's bedroom is 36 inches wide. The diagonal of the window is 44 inches. Which measurement is closest to the height of the window? vietress:

You would use the pythagorean theorem to find the answer to this problem. $a^2 + 36^2 = 44^2$The first step is to solve for the exponents. 36 squared is 1296 44 squared is 1936 The new equation is: $a^2 + 1296 = 1936$Next, you subtract 1296 from both sides. This gives us: $a^2 = 640$The final step is to find the square root on both sides. $\sqrt{a^2} = \sqrt{640}$This gives us an answer of $a \approx 25.29$ Hope this helped!
