3 in., 4 in., and 5 in. would be the side lengths of a right triangle. 3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2; 9 + 16 = 25; 25 = 25

The length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle with sides that measure 7 cm and 24 cm is 25 cm. c = sqrt [(7^2) + (24^2)]; c = sqrt (49 + 576); c = sqrt 625; c = 25

The length of the side of a right triangle that has a side length of 7 cm and a hypotenuse that measures 25 cm is 24 cm. b = sqrt [(25^2) - (7^2)]; b = sqrt (625 - 49); b = sqrt 576; b = 24

The length of the side of a right triangle that has a side length of 12 ft and a hypotenuse that measures 15 ft is 9 ft. a = sqrt [(15^2) - (12^2)]; a = sqrt (225 - 144); a = sqrt 81; a = 9
