Hello,

I have to solve for x and side lengths in a right triangle.

1. The two equidistant sides are x and x + 6

2. The hypotenuse is 2 sqrt 17

If I am correct so far, I used the Pythagorean Theorem. So:

x^2 + (x + 6)^2 = (2 sqrt 17)^2

x^2 + x^2 + 36 = I don't know how to do this.

Thank you very much!
