Pythagorean Theorem - second example is incorrect

The second example is incorrect because if the ABD is a right triangle, we should get the same answer for segment AD, but

AD^2 = 84^2-12^2 = (83.138438763306110089317424392282)^2

and not 80, The figure must be corrected.

True. It's a bad example. @Sharky Kesa. What do you use for geometrical figures? I would've corrected it myself if I knew how to do it.
