i think you are referring to the 2 triangles below: |dw:1358265360763:dw|

3. Cory! Group Title

Yes I am.

4. cwrw238 Group Title

so for example if you are given the left side triangle with longest side = 10 and shortest = 5 you know that other side = 5 sqrt3

5. cwrw238 Group Title

similarly can you find the hypotenuse in following triangle |dw:1358265730213:dw|

6. Cory! Group Title

But how can they help me find side lengths specifically?

7. cwrw238 Group Title

well an example is above what is the length of x?
