Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:C. 24Step-by-step explanation:In a right triangle, the sum of the squares of the two legs of the triangle is equivalent to the square of the hypotenuse.a²+b²=c²a=10b=?c=26Let us substitute with the values given in the question.10²+b²=26²100+b²=676b²=676-100b²=576b=√576=24The other leg of the triangle is 24 units long.
