Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the other two sides are sqrt(3) and 2 for the hypotenuse. shortest side is opposite the 30 degree angle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its the same kind of problem but the side is 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok all 306090 triangles are similar. so if the ratio of the sides is always 1:sqrt(3):2 and if the side corresponding to 1 is 8 we get 8, 8sqrt(3), 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not at all.. but the answer i got was 4, sqrt(3) and it was right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not if the smallest side of the triangle was 8. which side was 8?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the hypotenuse was 8 then you would get 4, 4sqrt(3), 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the shortest side is = h, then by using Law of Sines: sin30/h = sin60/x where is x= longer side (another one; across from 60 degree angle); now: \[x=h*sqrt{\3\}\] now use Pythagorean Theorem to find c... let me know if there is a problem :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0was the shortest side 1 for the first problem you asked or was that hypotenuse also?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the question i last asked had the hypotenuse of eight.. the first one was correct.
