Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you draw two segments, each 4 inches long. Then make sure the angle between them is 90 degrees, does that determine a specific triangle? Has the third side become of a fixed length?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Look at the figure above. Let's say both sides are 4 inches long and the angle between them is 90 degrees. If the two 4inch segments and the angle between are part of a triangle, can you draw the third side of the triangle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The third side shown above would be it, right? There is no other way of drawing a triangle with the two 4inch sides and the included 90 deg angle, right?
