In a 30-60-90 triangle, the short leg is the hypotenuse divided by 2 and the long leg is the short leg multiplied by sqrt3.

3. Mertsj

In your problem x is the short leg and 15 is the long leg

4. Mertsj

So you should write: $x \sqrt{3}=15$ and solve that equation

5. kymy_rose00

how do i solve that

7. kymy_rose00
