    In relation to the angle x, what sides do you know: hypotenuse, adjacent, opposite. Choose.

    Do you understand that the hypotenuse is always the longest sides in a right triangle and that it is opposite the right angle?

    dang, buddy, the triangle only has 3 sides. If it's not the hypotenuse, what is left?
