    well x was half of the hypotenuse and you times x by the square root of 3.

    that answer is wrong becasue when you have a 90-45-45 triangle the other sides are always equal.

    A= unknown angle, b =known angle 45 and c = 90 sinB =AC/AB=Opp/hyp

    AC = AB x sinB

    oh well on my reference sheet it says the hypotenuse is equal to x to the square root of 2 and the other two sides are x, so i guess both x and y =15

    the sides you are looking for are AC or BC C being the right angle the def of the sine of and angle is OPP/ hyp
