Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it says the longer leg, so I am not sure if that pertains to the hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0certainly hypotenuse is longest .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that would be the LONGEST, but the problem says LONGER so we can make it this way long, longer and longest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0based on these information, without the use of trigonometry, we can use patterns \(shortleg = \frac{1}{2}hypotenuse \)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if shortleg is 1/2 of hypotenuse then \(longleg = shortleg \times \sqrt{3} \)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or \(longleg = \frac{1}{2}hypotenuse \times \sqrt{3} \)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\((18 \times 2) \div \sqrt{3} = hypotenuse \) becase we know that: \(shortleg = \frac{1}{2}~ hypotenuse \)
