See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Given information.

The two sides are given 9 and 11. ## Step 2. Theorem used.

We use Pythagorean Theorem.

Pythagorean Theorem state that in a right angle triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of squares of other sides.

## Step 3. Now find the value.

Substitute the values and calculate.

$\begin{array}{c}{9}^{2}+{x}^{2}={11}^{2}\\ 81+{x}^{2}=121\\ {x}^{2}=40\end{array}$

Taking square root we get.

$\begin{array}{l}x=±\sqrt{40}\\ x=±2\sqrt{10}\end{array}$

Since, distance is a positive quantity so we neglect negative sign.

Therefore, the value of $x$ is $2\sqrt{10}$. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
