    There is a tool in the draw section that allows you to make a bar, ya know

    I'm trying to find the labeled lengths.

    And to make sure, the lengths are 4, 4, x for the first triangle and y, 1, 2 for the second?

    Yes.

    So, how would I determine the labeled lengths? That's what I'm confused about.

    Yes, those are the lengths like legend asked.

    I feel like this is about the properties of 45-45-90 triangles and 30-60-90 triangles. The first is definitely a 45-45-90 triangle though.

    So, how would I solve the labeled lengths though? And thanks those pictures are a lot better then mine.

    But for the first one, to find x, just apply the properties of a 45-45-90 triangle. \[\large Hypotenuse~=~Leg\sqrt{2}\]

    So, the square root of 2?

    Ohh okay, so 4*4=16 and then the square root of 16 which would be 4?

    No, just \[\large x~=~4\sqrt{2}\]

    Yeah, but it depends on what form they want you to leave it in. I usually would just leave it as \(4\sqrt{2}\)
