### When does right-angle triangle have least hypotenuse?

When it is an isosceles right angled triangle: with angles that are 90-45-45.

### A right triangle has legs with lengths of 25 cm and 37 cm - what is the length of the hypotenuse?

This right triangle has a hypotenuse of: 44.65 cmFor A+ its 45

### Do all triangles have 2 legs and one hypotenuse EXPLAIN?

Nope. The hypotenuse is defined as the side of a right triangle opposite the right angle. a 45 - 45 -90 right triangle would, for instance, have two legs and a hypotenuse. However an equilateral triangle would not.

### What is a 45 45 90 triangle with a hypotenuse of 24?

It would be an isosceles right triangle. The two sides that aren't the hypotenuse are equal, with lengths of 16.971 (rounded) .

### Which isosceles triangle has a base that is also the hypotenuse of a right triangle?

It is a triangle whose interior angles are 45, 45 and 90 degrees

### How do you find the length of the sides of a right triangle when you know the hypotenuse?

If it is a 45-45-90 triangle, then divide the hypotenuse by the square root of 2. If it is a 30-60-90 triangle, then the shorter leg would be the hypotenuse divided by 2. And the longer leg would be the the shorter leg multiplied by the square root of 3.

### In a right triangle when you draw an altitude to the hypotenuse are the triangles ever similar?

Only if the angles of the triangle are 90, 45, and 45.

### How do you find the length of two legs of a 45-45-90 triangle if you only have the hypotenuse?

Since for any right triangle a^2 + b^2 = c^2 and in your case a = b so 2 a^2 = c^2 where c is the hypotenuse.

### What is the area of the hypotenuse of a right triangle whose legs measure 45 cm and 60 cm?

The length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle whose legs measure 45 cm and 60 cm is: 75 cmThe area of the triangle is 1,350 cm2

### Does a right-angled triangle have any symmetery?

If it is a 45-45-90 triangle, it will have symmetry from the 90 degree angle to the midpoint of the hypotenuse.

### 45 degree right triangle with a base of 16 feet 6 34 inches how long is the hypotenuse?

A 45 degree right triangle with a base of 16 feet 6 3/4 inches has a hypotenuse of: 23.69 inches.
