smallest side = s other side = \(s*\sqrt3\) hypotenuse = 2*s Do you know how to use these?

82 - (82/3) I believe. = 54.67 or you can use SOH CAH TOA if you prefer using those.

So, for the big triangle, we find the length of the side AB to be 82/sqrt3. then use that number to find the small triangles side length BD Ok, let me check this to make sure.

the very first post of mine was applied twice. The x was solving for the short side. hope that helps. :)

You can also use trig. :) \[tan(30) = \frac{AB}{BC}= \frac{ AB}{82cm}\] \[AB =82cm*tan(30)\] After you have this AB value, you can solve for BD: \[tan(60) = \frac{ AB}{ BD}\] \[BD= \frac{AB}{tan(60) }\] Once you solve for BD=?, you can find DC by subtraction. BC=82 DC= BC - BD
