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

    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

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