There are an infinite number of different sets of lengths that will do it. You have to start by choosing the length of one side, and when you do that, here's how to find the others: Shorter leg = (longer leg) x 0.364 Shorter leg = (hypotenuse) x 0.342 Longer leg = (shorter leg) x 2.747 Longer leg = (hypotenuse) x 0.94 Hypotenuse = (shorter leg) / 0.342 Hypotenuse = (longer leg) / 0.94

If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and a leg of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

The length of the longer leg of a right triangle is 3ftmore than three times the length of the shorter leg. The length of the hypotenuse is 4ftmore than three times the length of the shorter leg. Find the side lengths of the triangle.

In a right triangle with a hypotenuse of 11 and one leg of 8, the other leg is: 7.55

If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and a leg of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.

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.

The hypotenuse leg of a right angle triangle is its longest side.

.The hypotenuse is twice as long as the shorter leg The longer leg is twice as long as the shorter leg.

congruent; hypotenuse and a leg

In a 30Â° 60Â° 90Â° triangle, the ratio (long leg)/hypotenuse = sqrt(3)/2 ~ 0.866The ratio (short leg)/hypotenuse = 1/2 = 0.5
