Hello! Pretty simple problem I guess, just can't get my head around it, havent done math in a while so any help would be greatly appreciated! 64²/16² + 4²/B² = 1 so I guess 4 + 4/b = 1 it's from there I'm unsure how to solve the rest!

Your guess is incorrect. Try simplifying the numbers first, you should get to: 16 + 16/b² = 1 Then move the 16: 16/b² = 15 Then multiply by b² 16 = 15b² Then divide by 15 b² = 16/15 Now root it b = 4i/root(15)
