For isosceles triangle both legs are the same, 10 cm. The hypotenuse is square root of sum of legs squared, = sqrt (10 squared + 10 squared) = 14.1 cm

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

in an isosceles triangle, if the legs have length L, then the hypotenuse has length L square root of 2


What is hypotenuse in an isosceles triangle?

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.


How do you calculate the hypotenuse of an isosceles right triangle?

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.


What is the area of an isosceles right triangle whose hypotenuse is 12 2?

The length of the hypotenuse, alone, is not sufficient to determine the area of a triangle.


In an isosceles right triangle the hypotenuse is radical three and if the hypotenuse is 12 then what is the smaller leg of that triangle?

If the hypotenuse is the square root of three, then the legs are (root 6)/2. If the hypotenuse is 12, then the legs are 6(root 2). This is because, for any given right isosceles triangle, the length of the hypotenuse x is root two times the length of the legs.


What is the length of the longest side in an isosceles right triangle?

The longest length would be the hypotenuse. You can use SOHCAHTOA to find the length.

What is the difference between an isosceles triangle and a right triangle?

In an isosceles triangle, two sides are of equal length. An isosceles triangle also has two congruent angles. An equilateral triangle is an isosceles triangle, but not all isosceles triangles are equilateral triangles. __________ A right triangle (or right-angled triangle, formerly called a rectangled triangle) has one 90° internal angle (a right angle). The side opposite to the right angle is the hypotenuse; it is the longest side in the right triangle. An isoceles triangle has TWO sides of equal length but and equilateral triangle has THREE sides of equal length.
