Hello there! When doing a problem like this, you must remember the pythagorean theorem! A^2+ B^2 = C^2

You can fill in A with 53 and fill in C with 18.

When you fill this in, you must remember that the numbers are squared!

When you find B^2 remember to square root the answer in order to get B.

Hope this helps!
