1. ## funny math problem

2. I've seen that...Quite a bit...

3. I've never seen that before. It was kind of funny. Does anybody know what the answer is? I tried to solve it in my head, but I forget how to solve it. And it doesn't help that I'm horrible at algebra either.

Pythagorean Theorem

x=3
² + 4²
x=9+16
x=(square root)25
x=5

And then you square root it...So then it's 5...So x=5
