Your answer is B. First, since we know that both legs are equal, we can figure out their lengths by finding the square root of 144 and that is 12. To find the hypotenuse, we multiply length by the square root of two. Being as your choices had that was part of one of your options, it would be logical to conclude that B is the correct answer.
