    you cant solve this with pythagoras theorem you have to use trig I'm pretty sure

    \[2x^2=12^2\]\[2x^2=144\]\[x^2=\frac{144}{2}\]\[x^2=72\]\[x= \sqrt{72}\]\[x= \sqrt{36*2}\]\[x=6 \sqrt{2}\]

    \[x\sqrt{2} = 12\]\[x = \frac{12}{\sqrt{2}}\]\[x = \frac{12}{\sqrt{2}} \times \frac{\sqrt{2}}{\sqrt{2}}\]\[x = \frac{12\sqrt{2}}{2}\]\[x = 6\sqrt{2}\]There you go :)

    SOH CAH TOA Sin = opposite/hypotenuse cos = adjacent/hypotenuse tan = opposite/adjacent cos(45) = x/12 cos(45)(12) = x

    from this I noticed that you can simply get one of the sides by multiplying the hypotenuse by \[\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\]

    Ok. Same situation. The legs are always congruent in a 45-45-90 triangle. The hypotenuse is always in this ratio: \[Leg \times \sqrt{2}\]Can you figure it out since you have the leg?
