**WHAT IS ALGEBRA??**

Alegbra is finding the unknown and having a balance.

**WHAT IS THE ALGEBRA FORMULA??**

The formula for algebra that we use is a2 + b2 = c2. This formula is used for solving a triangle's angle.

**FINDING THE SIDES OF THE TRIANGLE..........**

If you're trying to find the side of "C", then your formula would be like this : c2 = a2 + b2.

If you're trying to find the side of "B", then your formula would be like this : b2 = c2 - a2.

If you're trying to find the side of "A", then your formula would be like this : a2 = c2 - b2.

**Do you** actually know what the letters " a, b and c" really is? Well "a" means it's the **altitude**, "b" is the **base**, and "c" is the **hypotemuse**, which means the **longest side**.

**HOW TO FIND "C"**

c2 = a2 + b2

c2 = 7 squared + 9 squared

c2 = 49 + 81

c2 = __150__

c = /150

c = 12.24cm

**HOW TO FIND "B"**

b2 = c2 - a2

b2 = 8 squared - 3 squared

b2 = 64 - 9

b2 = __55__

b = /55

b = 7.41 cm

**HOW TO FIND "A"**

a2 = c2 - b2

a2 = 10 squared - 5 squared

a2 = 100 - 25

a2 = __75__

a = /75

a = 8.66

**HINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!**

** ALWAYS PUT THE UNIT VALUE SIGN!!!!!!!!!!**

HEY!! TRY OUT OUR JEOPARDY GAME!!

Wrong!

Correct!
