    First Problem

    Use the Pythagorean theorem.

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    24^2 + 10^2 = c^2

    576 + 100 = c^2

    676 = c^2

    c^2 = 676

    c = 26

    Answer: B) 26 m

    Second Problem

    From the first problem, we know that the lengths 10, 24, 26 work in the Pythagorean theorem, so the answer is D) 10, 24, 26

    Third Problem

    Use the Pythagorean theorem.

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    8^2 + b^2 = 10^2

    64 + b^2 = 100

    b^2 = 36

    b = 6

    Answer: D) 6.0 ft
