    6 = (2x^2)^(0.5) x = 4.24

    as both side lengths = x, both angles must be the same length. 2x^2=c^2 2x^2=36 2x=6 x=3 "i got rad 3 but its not right" You probably didn't square 6. If you don't, then: 2x^2=6 x^2 = 3 x=sqrt(3) what you got

    And to write out the full formula: a^2 + b^2 = c^2 however, a and b are the same length, so... x^2 + x^2 = c^2 2x^2 = c^2 2x^2 =36 x^2 = 18 x = sqrt(18) <---- that's the actual answer sometimes helps to write out the full thing lol

    So I was right? I actually doubted myself for a moment there.....

    except for where you said it is = 4.24. That's an approximation.
