The ratio between short leg : long leg : hypotenuse is \(1 : \sqrt{3} : 2\).

Knowing that, you can use Pythagoras to solve for \(x\). Being across from the 60º angle, would it be the long leg or the short leg?

That's what I get, yes, since \(\large x = \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}(h)\)

geoffbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
As I said, yes. \[\large x = \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}(h) = \frac{16\sqrt{3}}{2} = 8\sqrt{3}\]
