Laying the Foundation. Geometry. Pythagorean Theorem Applications. Problem 11:

Determine the length of the hypotenuse of the largest Pythagorean triple triangle in which 16 is the measure of a leg. Show the analysis that leads to your conclusion. (hint: begin by writing and equation using the Pythagorean Theorem, then use factoring to write a system of equations.)

This is, in my opinion, the most challenging problem of this set from LTF. The trick is in the hint. If at any point you feel you have enough information to try this on your own before watching all of the solution, you should pause the video and try it on your own first. This is the way to have the best affect on your learning.
