30 60 90 triangles
|dw:1359330784183:dw|

what is the ratio of the sides...how do I find them?
The side opposite the 30 degree angle is always 1/2 the hypotenuse. That is the short leg. The long leg is the short leg multiplied by sqrt 3
Perfect! Thank you!
My instructor mentioned it in class and I took notes, but I just needed to have it explained again. =D
@ashleedean this is how Openstudy members help each other. Not by handing out answers @Hero
And you need to learn these relationships...also those for the 45-45-90 triangle. You will need them over and over again as you progress mathematically.
If you didn't do anything wrong, then why stress over it? http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/5105b4f0e4b0ad57a5637542
your guilt speaks for itself
