The length of the third side is 20 cm

Using Pythagoras' theorem for a right angle triangle its hypotenuse works out as 52.63078947 feet

Treat it as being two right angled triangles by halving the base and use the cosine ratio to find its hypotenuse (which will be one of the equal sides) cosine = adjacent/hypotenuse hypotenuse = adjacent/cosine hypotenuse = 6/cosine 20 degrees = 6.385066635 The length of the equal sides = 6.4 units correct to one decimal place.

A right triangle only has two legs, the third side is called the hypotenuse . The square of the length of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the two legs. The square root of the difference of the square of the hypotenuse and the square of one leg is equal to the length of the other leg.

Augustus Pythagoras: let the equal sides be 1 unit. The square of the third side, which is the hypotenuse, is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, in this case 12 and 12, a total of 2. The hypotenuse is therefore equal to the square root of two.

because the ratio of one side of a triangle to the hypotenuse can never be more that one.

Pythagoras: If the third side is the hypotenuse, it is sqrt(262 + 202) FEET; Sqrt(676 + 400) = sqrt 1076 = 32 ft 9½ in or 393½in. If the hypotenuse is the 312 inch side then third side = sqrt(676 - 400) ie sqrt 276 = 16.6 ft or 199.4 in

Sure, place a triangle's hypotenuse (longest side) on the other triangle's hypotenuse, that will give either a square or a rectangle. Then place the square on one end of the rectangle. For this to work though, the length of the square's side HAS to equal the length of the triangles hypotenuses, and likewise each triangle's hypotenuse much equal the length of a side of the square. Hope this is clear.

If one side of a right angled triangle is 32 and the other side is 43 the hypotenuse is 53.6

The measure of a triangle's angles if the hypotenuse is six and one side is one are:9.594 degrees80.41 degrees90 degrees

If two right triangles have the hypotenuse and leg of one equal respectively to the hypotenuse and leg of the other, then the triangles are congruent.

It is the median which divides the side which is not one of the equal sides.
