I'm not sure of your question: the values of the sides have to follow the formula of 30-60-90 triangles. I'm not sure if you want me to help you chose an answer if there are no options

Short leg = (1/2)hypotenuse
Long leg = (1/2)hypotenuse *sqrt(3)

A.{4,4r2,8}
B.{4,4r3,8}
C.{4,4r3,8r3}
D.{4,4r2,8r2
sorry it took me so long this is my question here and i wasn't sure how to put radical in the equation so i just put r

I'm guessing it goes in the order (short leg, long leg, hypotenuse) ?

- anonymous

yeah its on a site called apex learning

- anonymous

radical is what i meant

- anonymous

so 4r2 = \[4\sqrt{3}\]

- anonymous

*4r3

- anonymous

how do u enter the radical symbol in the equation

- anonymous

There's a blue button that says "equation" under the chat bar.

- anonymous

Use the forumla I posted above

- anonymous

Short leg = 0.5(hypotenuse)
Long leg = 0.5(hypotenuse)*\[\sqrt{3}\]

- anonymous

also, the hypotenuse is the longest side :P

- anonymous

is there a way i could just send a picture of my screen... it would be a lot easier for you

- anonymous

I know what you mean and the answer, don't worry about me.

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

do you have your answer?

- anonymous

no not yet

- anonymous

Did you try to use what I posted above? Once you do it's very easy

- anonymous

sorry but im not sure how to use it

- anonymous

You know the short leg is 4, because that's the answer for all the options

- anonymous

oh your right

- anonymous

Find hypotenuse by multiplying by 2, and find the long leg by multiplying by sqrt(3)

- anonymous

i dont know which number to multiply by 2 it doesn't show the hypotenuse

- anonymous

The order goes like this: shortleg, shortleg*sqrt(3), shortleg*2

- anonymous

ohh

- anonymous

do you have the answer now :P

- anonymous

workin on it...im just confused

- anonymous

Here's a hint, because square root 2 isn't in the formula, you can eliminate all answers with square root 2

- anonymous

soo that just leaves B and C right ?

- anonymous

Yes, and short leg is 4, because 4 is the first number for all the options

- anonymous

and hypotenuse = short leg*2, so the last number should not have a radical

- anonymous

took a while, but I think you know the answer now :)

- anonymous

oh please tell me B is the right answer

- anonymous

Yes :)

- anonymous

@$#!@ yeahh!!!
thnx for your help
