    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
    + 4
    x=9+16
    x=(square root)25
    x=5

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