 Question 289470: I know that the hypoteneuse of a right triangle is 9.0553. That, and the 90 degree angle is all I know. I need to know the length of the short side to find the solution to the full problem (this is only one little part of it.) This is what I tried to find one side: 2s^2=9.0553^2 2s/2^2=81.99/2 s^2=40.99 SQRT(s^2)=SQRT(40.99) s=6.40 Then I thought I could plug that into the pythagorean theorem (a^2+b^2=c^2; where a=6.40, and c=9.0553) but my answer for the other side was also 6.40 I know this can't be right because it is an iscoseles triangle. What do I need to do to find the lenth of the other two sides, or at least just of the shortest side? Is there a way to find the degree measures of the other angles in case it is a 90-60-30 triangle?
