ok, we know that 1 cm = 0.01 m right, so we can just stick in 0.01 m where we see cm.

so 1300 cm^2

= 1300 (0.01 m)^2

= 1300 (0.01^2 m^2)

= 1300(0.0001 m^2)

= 0.13 m^2

i think you need a diagram here, or at least tell me which length is the hypotenuse, the hypotenuse is the longest side (that's the one opposite the right angle). when you tell me that, we will use pythagoras' theorem to find a2. given a right triangle with b=4 and c =11, find a approximated to three decimal places.

thank you so much in advance...Mimi
