The shortest leg would be 9

Shortest leg = 9
"Medium" side = 15.588
Hypotenuse = 18
Where's the problem?

It seems 9 is the only correct answer IF the hypotenuse is equal to 18.

alright ill give 9 a try thank you

Will you get an answer right after you post that?

Well thanks for the comment. Well maybe in math anyway.

ha yeah thank you

okay and good luck.

help im questioning the answer 9?

see this is how im seeing it in my head

So to get from the medium leg back to the short leg, we need to divide by sqrt3.

ya let's ignore my previous picture :) that was bad hehe.

it will get rid of the square roots right?

Yes, good, just leaving us with a 3 down there.\[\Large\rm =\frac{18\sqrt3}{3}\]

hmm you divide the 18 by 3 right?

Ah yes very good, since it doesn't match any of our options yet.

6 (square root over 3) right

yay good job \c:/

wow thank \(^.^)/ that was great help and really good explanations you gave me
