what that means is just that the longest side is TWICE as much as the smallest side so "2a" is twice as much as "a" so if I had a 306090 triangle whose smallest side were say 25 then the longest will be TWICE as much, or 50, thus dw:1375658213907:dw

if I had a 306090 triangle whose smallest side were say "WHATEVER" my longest side will be "WHATEVER" x 2

not on the 2a part but what about the a sqrt3

ienarancilloBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you just have to multipy the 20 with the sqrt of 3.
 8 months ago

ienarancilloBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
first, you have to divide 40 by 2, in order to find a. cos its 2a/2 > you will now find a. and then there it says "a sqrt of 3", so you just have to multiply a with sqrt of 3.

in that case watch the video where he does examples

KrishnadasBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
or we can go using geometry

this means BC is AB*root 3
 8 months ago

KrishnadasBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so BC=root3 *(x) =y
