If it is a right angle triangle then using Pythagoras; theorem its hypotenuse is 30 times the square root of 2 in inches which is about 42.426 inches rounded to 3 decimal places.

An isosceles right triangle will always have its shorter sides of the same length, and the hypotenuse will always be this length times sin(45o) or times the square root of 0.5.

The hypotenuse measures 11.4 meters in length.
