 Question 605110: In a 30°- 60°- 90° right triangle, the shorter leg is 9 cm. How long are the other two sides of the triangle? A. -longer leg 9 times the square root of 2 -hypotenuse 18 B. -longer leg 9 times the square root of 3 -hypotenuse 18 C. -longer leg 18 -hypotenuse the square root of 3 D. -longer leg 18 -hypotenuse the square root of 2Answer by asuar010(324)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!the answer is B because in this special triangle the shorter leg is x the longest leg is x*sqrt(3) and hypotenuse 2x
