    I'd really like to LEARN how to do this because I got an entire list of problems like this that I gotta solve, so if you could help me learn the concept I'd really appreciate that

    okay sweet, so it's 30-60-90, and then from there we can know the side length?

    from knowing the 3, I think the hypotenuse is the 6 because of the pythagoreum (spelling) theorum

    only thing I'm confused on is finding the length of the second side

    yes but if you look at the pic it shows how to get the shorter side

    because 3 to the sqrt 3 makes the longer side you take away the sqrt 3 and you get left with what?

    and then you multiply the shorter leg by 2 to get the hypotenuse
