# The two sides of a right-angled triangle are 6 cm and 8 cm. Find the length of the hypotenuse.

**Given: **The two sides of a right-angled triangle are 6 cm and 8 cm.

**To find:** Here we have to find the length of the hypotenuse.

**Solution:**

We know that in a right-angled triangle:

(Hypotenuse)^{2 }= (Base)^{2 }$+$ (Height)^{2}

Now,

Base = 8 cm and Height = 6 cm

(Hypotenuse)^{2 }= (Base)^{2 }$+$ (Height)^{2}

(Hypotenuse)^{2 }= 8^{2 }$+$ 6^{2 }

(Hypotenuse)^{2 }= 64 $+$ 36

(Hypotenuse)^{2 }= 100

**Hypotenuse**^{ }= 10 cm

So, hypotenuse is equal to 10 cm.
