complete the statements:
To find the length of the hypotenuse of a 454590 triangle, multiply the length of one of the legs by:?
Could the answer be .5???
to find the length of the shorter leg of a 306090 triangle, multiply the length of the longer leg by:?
To find the length of the hypotenuse of a 306090 triangle, multiply the length of the hypotenuse by:?
I checked I know that this question says hypotenuse twice, but...
Thanks.

The ratios of sides of a 454590 triangle are 1:1:√2
so you would multiply the length of one of the legs by √2 (which is not .5 !)
the ratios of sides of a 306090 triangles are 1:√3:2
so, to find the length of the shorter leg of a 306090 triangle, multiply the length of the longer leg by 1/√3
You should be able to answer the third part by yourself.
