Say that a and b are the lengths of the legs of a right triangle and c is the length of the hypotenuse. Find a if b = 6 and c = 10. a. a = 8 c. a = 64 b. a = 4 d. a = 16

Weegy: The hypotenuse of a right triangle with legs 8 and 10 is sqrt (8^2 + 10^2) = sqrt 164 = 2 sqrt 41 (about 12.8)

When b = 6, c = 10, a = sqrt (c^2 - b^2) = sqrt (10^2 - 6^2) = 8.
