    First, learn the 30-60-90 theorem. See attachment. The shorter leg is the side opposite the 30 degree angle. So, what is the length of the hypotenuse?

    I understand. But, I need you to work with me. Look at the diagram I provided and tell me what you think.

    The shorter leg is 1/2 the hypotenuse. So, if the shorter leg is 10, then the hypotenuse is 20. Let me know what you think.
