To find the missing side of a right triangle using the Pythagorean Theorem, you can use the formula a^2 + b^2 = c^2. In this case, we are given that b = 5 and c = 8.

To find the missing side, let's label it as a.

Using the formula, we can substitute the given values:

a^2 + 5^2 = 8^2

Simplifying the equation:

a^2 + 25 = 64

Subtracting 25 from both sides:

a^2 = 39

Taking the square root of both sides:

a = √39

Therefore, the missing side of the right triangle is √39.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
