## anonymous one year ago If the hypotenuse of a right triangle is 2√3 units long and one of the legs is √3 units long, then how long is the other leg? A.) 3 B.) 2√3 C.) √3

isnt it the same tho? two legs are the same

2. anonymous

so my guess is c?

This will be a 30-60-90 triangle. And artie is wrong

The relation between the hypotenuse and small leg is that the small leg is 1/2 of the hypotenuse. So the hypotenuse is $$2\sqrt{3}$$ and the small leg is $$\sqrt{3}$$. The leg we are looking for is the long leg, which is $\large small~leg\sqrt{3}$
