Solve for x 15^2+x^2=25^2

Math
152+x2=252
Raise 15 to the power of 2.
225+x2=252
Raise 25 to the power of 2.
225+x2=625
Move all terms not containing x to the right side of the equation.
Tap for more steps…
Subtract 225 from both sides of the equation.
x2=625-225
Subtract 225 from 625.
x2=400
x2=400
Take the square root of both sides of the equation to eliminate the exponent on the left side.
x=±400
The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.
Tap for more steps…
