Answer: C, 21.5

Explanation: The missing side in this right triangle is the hypotenuse of the right triangle, and we know the lengths of the two legs of the triangle. So, we can use the Pythagorean theorem, which tells us that:

a^2 + b^2 = c^2, where a and b are the lengths of the legs, and c is the hypotenuse. Plugging in 10 and 19 for a and b, we get

(10)^2 + (19)^2 = c^2

100 + 361 = c^2

461 = c^2

sqrt(461) = c

21.5 = c
