## anonymous 5 years ago If the hypotenuse of a right triangle is 2√3 units long and one of the legs is √3 units long, then how long is the other leg? a) 3 b) 2√ 3 c) √3

$a^{2}+b ^{2}=c ^{2}$

$(\sqrt{3})^{2}+(b ^{2})=(2\sqrt{3})^{2}$

Solve for b

so its √3

$b ^{2}=(2\sqrt{3})^{2}-(\sqrt{3})^{2}$

3

$b ^{2}=12-3=9$
