There are two types of special triangles: 45

A 45

Side 1: side 2 : hypotenuse = a : a: a√2

Find x.

This is a right triangle with two equal sides so it must be a 45

So we use, a : a: a√2

Here a = 6

Hypotenuse = a√2 = 6√2.

_________________________________________________________________

Isosceles right triangle means 45

So we use, a : a: a√2

Here hypotenuse = a√2 = 10√2

Side = a = 10

Isosceles right triangle means 45

So we use, a : a: a√2

Here hypotenuse = a√2 = 18

Side = a = 18/√2

a= (18x√2)/(√2x√2) (Rationalize the denominator)

a = 18√2/2

a = 9√2

Each side = 9√2
