With 2 45 degree angles we know that the sides opposite the hypotenuse are equal. You can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the hypotenuse: $h = \sqrt{a^2+b^2}$ Hint: a = b = 8

3. abm1995

would it be 4?

$$h=\sqrt{ 8^2 +8^2}$$

5. whpalmer4

No. Think about it - the hypotenuse is longer than either side...
