    Do you know the relationship between sides of a 30-60-90 triangle?

    here we can use trignometry to find the length...

    Uhm. Chethus, I strongly disagree with you in all humble respect. The longest leg is across from 90.

    The hypotenuse is 30, stated in your given question. The hypotenuse in my picture is 2x. Given that you can compare both triangles, you can say that 30=2x So @Revoltz_Dreamz What is your answer if your solve that equation?

    leg is just a term used in rite triangles...it symbolifies either of the sides except the hypo

    So, if the hypotenuse is 30, then what are the values of the other legs?
