Euclid theorems

Calculate the sides of a right triangle if leg a = 6 cm, and a section of the hypotenuse, which is located adjacent to the second leg b is 5cm.

Correct result:

a =  6 cm
b =  6.7082 cm
c =  9 cm


a=6=6 cm
c2=5 cm h/a=c22h2/h h2/a=c22h2 5 36h2=h2  h=2 5=2 54.4721 b=c22+h2=52+4.47212=3 5=6.7082 cm
c=a2+b2=62+6.70822=9 cm   Verifying Solution:  c1=cc2=95=4 cm x1=a2c c1=629 4=0 x2=b2c c2=6.708229 58.46261012
