    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) ?

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

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

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

    also, the hypotenuse is the longest side :P

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

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

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

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

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

    soo that just leaves B and C right ?

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

  32. anonymous

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