    right triangle's hypotenuse

    Hello all,

    Can we find the hypotenuse of a right triangle, when we just know that it is right and its one side?

    Thank you in advance!

    no, you will need to know either the length of the other two sides, or one side and at least one angle (other than the 90 degree angle )
