Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is that better? Cause I can try again.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is a tool in the draw section that allows you to make a bar, ya know

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm trying to find the labeled lengths.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And to make sure, the lengths are 4, 4, x for the first triangle and y, 1, 2 for the second?

Liv1234

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, how would I determine the labeled lengths? That's what I'm confused about.

Liv1234

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, those are the lengths like legend asked.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I feel like this is about the properties of 454590 triangles and 306090 triangles. The first is definitely a 454590 triangle though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, how would I solve the labeled lengths though? And thanks those pictures are a lot better then mine.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And yeah, Legend is definitely correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But for the first one, to find x, just apply the properties of a 454590 triangle. \[\large Hypotenuse~=~Leg\sqrt{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, the square root of 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Should make it a bit clearer dw:1435942323278:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohh okay, so 4*4=16 and then the square root of 16 which would be 4?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, just \[\large x~=~4\sqrt{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, but it depends on what form they want you to leave it in. I usually would just leave it as \(4\sqrt{2}\)
