This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 1, Unit 7, Grade 8. Recall the Pythagorean theorem and its converse for right triangles. Write an equation that allows you to determine the length of the unknown side of the right triangle.

Then, call on students to measure the lengths directly for Examples 1-3.
