    the first 2 sides of the triangle have to be greater than the third, when you add them together

    No because you have two unknown sides.

    So how would you find two unknown side lengths that are radicals ?

    pythagorean theorem for this problem would look like: |dw:1352937549063:dw|

    This doesnt help you find the side lengths.

    so how would you set up an equation to solve for the unknown side lengths

    so since you know the degrees of your triangle you can set up an equation. I'll show u.

    i calculated it and it just gives me deciamls which i believe the answers come out to be radicals

    They are radicals, your calc is giving equivalent decimals

    so how could i make them into radicals from decimal form?
