Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What's the right answer again?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I was right? I actually doubted myself for a moment there.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0except for where you said it is = 4.24. That's an approximation.
