## How to Find Right Triangle Calculator?

To calculate the length of hypotenuse we use the Pythagoras formula which states the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the square of other two sides. To determine the length of the hypotenuse of the right triangle the following formula is used:

Hpotenuse = √((Perpendicular)^{2} + (Base)^{2})

**Solved Example:**

Find the length of the hypotenuse of the right triangle with base of 6 feet and perpendicular of 8 feet.

**Solution:**

Length of base = 6 feet

Length of perpendicular = 8 feet

Now, length of hypotenuse = √((Perpendicular)^{2} + (Base)^{2})

Hypotenuse = √((8)^{2} + (6)^{2})

Hypotenuse = √100

Hypotenuse = 10.

Therefore, the length of the hypotenuse is 10 feet
