You can calculate the height of objects for example.
Say there was a building in Math Town you wanted the height of. The shadow of the building is 30 ft long and you know the hypotenuse to be 50 ft.

##30^2+x^2=50^2##

##900+x^2= 2500## (Subtract 900)

3.## x^2=1600##
4.## x=40##
The height of the building is 40 ft.
