if the angles are 45-45-90 or 30-60-90 Those are the special right triangles.
well cause it has 3 sides :p
all triangles have 3 sides lol.. that would make them ALL special

Why don't you just tell us what triangle you are talking about and we will help you solve it.
well i dont have a specific triangle its just any right triangle.. i dont get this question either.. :L
What is the question?
thats the question: What makes a triangle a “special” right triangle? How can special right triangles help me find side lengths? its kind of confusing to me.. :L i dont get what it means when it says "special" right triangles..
There are certain equations that can help you find the side lengths. See the attached file for more info. "x" being your variable

so basically if the angles of a triangle are either 45-45-90 or 30-60-90 its "special" ?
The thing that makes a right triangle a "special right triangle" is the measure of its acute angles. If the acute angles are both 45 degrees it is a "special right triangle". The sides have the unique relationship in that the legs are equal in measure and the hypotenuse is the leg multiplied by the square root of 2. There is a second "special right triangle." It too is special because of the measure of it's acute angles. If the acute angles are 30 and 60 degrees it is called special. This is because of the relationship between the measures of its sides. In this triangle, the short leg is 1/2 the hypotenuse and the long leg can be found by multiplying the short leg by the square root of 3.
LOL did you get this question from fvs? :] im on the same thing now -.-
can you give an example @Mertsj ?
