# The legs of a right triangle have lengths of 4 and 5 units. Find the length of the hypotenuse?

**Solution:**

It is given that the legs of a right triangle have lengths of 4 and 5 units.

Now we have to find the hypotenuse of right angle triangle,

**hypotenuse ^{2} = perpendicular^{2} + base^{2}**

**Substituting the values**

h^{2} = 4^{2} + 5^{2}

h^{2} = 16 + 25

**By further calculation**

h^{2} = 41

h = √41

x = 6.4 units

**Therefore, the length of the hypotenuse is 6.4 units.**

## The legs of a right triangle have lengths of 4 and 5 units. Find the length of the hypotenuse?

**Summary:**

The legs of a right triangle have lengths of 4 and 5 units. The length of the hypotenuse is 6.4 units.
