72+242=c2

Rewrite the equation as c2=72+242.

c2=72+242

Take the square root of both sides of the equation to eliminate the exponent on the left side.

c=±72+242

Simplify the right side of the equation.

Raise 7 to the power of 2.

c=±49+242

Raise 24 to the power of 2.

c=±49+576

Add 49 and 576.

c=±625

Rewrite 625 as 252.

c=±252

Pull terms out from under the radical, assuming positive real numbers.

c=±25

c=±25

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

First, use the positive value of the ± to find the first solution.

c=25

Next, use the negative value of the ± to find the second solution.

c=-25

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

c=25,-25

c=25,-25

c=25,-25

Solve for c 7^2+24^2=c^2
