A right triangle with a leg length of 48 inches and a hypotenuse of 80 inches has a third leg of: 64 inches.

Only a right triangle has a hypotenuse. An isosceles triangle can be a right triangle but it doesn't have to be. If it's not, then it doesn't have a hypotenuse.

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.

It is 40 inches in length

The hypotenuse of right triangle of 300Cm and 400Cm is: 500 cm
