    The shorter leg of a 3-60-90 degree right triangle is half the hypotenuse, so the shorter leg is 11. Let "x" be the length of the longer leg, then: x^2 + 11^2 = 22^2 x^2 = 22^2 - 11^2

    you multiply the 11 and the square root of three together to get longer leg

    x^2 = 22^2 - 11^2 gives u 19.05?
