Given that is a right angle, the hypotenuse would be along the diameter of a circle and the corner would be on that circle.

I haven't fully proven the case but I get a diameter of about 14.8 with a midpoint of 7.4 would result in a circle that goes through the corner of the right triangle.

Given we have 5 and 8, the missing distance would be ~1.8 units.

Answer:

~1.8
