The short leg is equal to one-half of the hypotenuse. ( sin 30 = opposite/hypotenuse = short leg/hypotenuse = 1/2)

yes

A hypotenuse should not be shorter than a leg length.

The hypotenuse is 13.

Sin= Opposite leg/Hypotenuse Cos= Adjacent leg/ Hypotenuse Tan=Adjacent leg/ Opposite leg

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 two right triangles have (hypotenuse and a leg of one) = (hypotenuse and the corresponding leg of the other) then the triangles are congruent.

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.
