No. A hypotenuse is defined as the side opposite the right angle in a triangle that contains a right angle.

The hypotenuse of a right (angled) triangle is the side opposite the right (90 degree) angle. The hypotenuse is also the longest side.The hypotenuse of a right triangle is the side opposite theThe sine of an angle is the side opposite over the hypotenuse of the triangle.

The side opposite the 30Â° angle is 1/2 the hypotenuse or 0.5 hThe side opposite the 60Â° angle is (sin60Â°) times the hypotenuse or about 0.866 h

In a right angle triangle the hypotenuse is the largest side because it is opposite to the largest angle which is 90 degrees.

The hypotenuse is a side, not an angle. However, if you mean the angle across from the hypotenuse, it is always 90 degrees, or pi/2 radians because hypotenuses only exist in right triangles.

The hypotenuse angle theorem, also known as the HA theorem, states that 'if the hypotenuse and an acute angle of one right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and an acute angle of another right triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.'

the hypotenuse is the angle that is un named..

sin(angle) = opposite/hypotenuse → hypotenuse = opposite/sin(angle) opposite = rise → hypotenuse = 40ft / sin 16.5° ≈ 140.84 ft

The hypotenuse is the side opposite to the right angle in the triangle.

For trigonometry if you have the value of the hypotenuse and the angle, it depends what side you are trying to find. If you are looking for the side across from the angle, the formula is sine(angle)=opposite side divided by hypotenuse. If you are looking for the side adjacent to the angle, the formula is cosine(angle)=adjacent side divided by hypotenuse. Hope this helps!
