 Question 486606: A right triangle has a hypotenuse of 20 meters and a leg of 10√3 meters. How long, in meters, is the other leg of the triangle? I dont want the answer, i just want to know how to find the other leg.Answer by cleomenius(959)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!For this you would just use a^2 + b^2 = c^2 10^2 + b^2 = 20^2 173.2 + b^2 = 400 b^2 = 226.8 b = 15.06 (15.06)^2 + 10^2 = 20^2 226.8 ft+ 173.2 ft = 400 ft. 400 ft = 400 ft. This does check. Cleomenius.
