Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are looking for the ratio "short leg" / "long leg" to be 1/ sqr(3) (the legs are the two sides that are not the hypotenuse) choice A show 1/sqr(3) so that is an answer B simplifies to 1 , which is not the same as 1/sqr(3). ditto E. choice C: \[ \frac{\sqrt{2} }{\sqrt{3}}=? \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}} \] if you multiply both sides by sqr(3) you get \( \sqrt{2}=? 1\) no, sqr(2) is bigger than 1 choice D \[ \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} =? \frac{1}{\sqrt{3}} \] if you square each side , you get \( \frac{1}{2}=?\frac{1}{3} \) clearly not true. choice E, =1 , so no choice F: \[ \frac{ 2 \sqrt{3}}{6} =?\frac{1}{\sqrt{3} }\] simplify 2/6 to 1/3 \[ \frac{ \sqrt{3}}{3} =?\frac{1}{\sqrt{3} }\] if we square both sides we get \( \frac{3}{9}= ? \frac{1}{3} \) yes, 3/9 = 1/3. so choice F works.
