in a 30degree-60degree right triangle, the length of the side opposite the 60 degree angle is 8.3m. How long is the hypotenuse?.

  • Math -

    ans: take square root[(8.3/tan60)^2 + 8.3^2] (Pyth.thm)

    =9.58m

  • Math -

    Or, recognize that the sides of a 30-60-90 triangle are in the ratio 1:√3:2

    The long leg is 8.3, so the hypotenuse is 8.3*2/√3 = 9.58
