Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I know how to do the 306090 theorem. I know that it is the longer leg=\[\sqrt{3}\] * shorter leg. But how do I find the hypotenuse?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you know the length of two sides you can find the third one using the Pythagorean theorem.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe the answer is 14, right? Because the hypotenuse cannot be shorter than the legs.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's correct and clever thinking as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, thank you! After staring at it long enough, I was like, "Wait, it can't be any of these others because they're all the length of the leg or shorter!" Lol.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But if they didn't give you options you could use the fact that its an equilateral triangle cut in half. So if you know that the shorter leg is 7, the hypotenuse must be twice that.
