162+302=c2

Rewrite the equation as c2=162+302.

c2=162+302

Take the square root of both sides of the equation to eliminate the exponent on the left side.

c=±162+302

Simplify the right side of the equation.

Raise 16 to the power of 2.

c=±256+302

Raise 30 to the power of 2.

c=±256+900

Add 256 and 900.

c=±1156

Rewrite 1156 as 342.

c=±342

Pull terms out from under the radical, assuming positive real numbers.

c=±34

c=±34

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

First, use the positive value of the ± to find the first solution.

c=34

Next, use the negative value of the ± to find the second solution.

c=-34

The complete solution is the result of both the positive and negative portions of the solution.

c=34,-34

c=34,-34

c=34,-34

Solve for c 16^2+30^2=c^2
