When solving for the sides and angles of a right triangle in trig. If you have what two of what the three sides equal could you just use pythrogram theory?

Yep....if you have a right triangle and you know two sides, you can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the remaining side.....just remember...

 

hypotenuse  =   sqrt [ ( leg 1)^2  +  ( leg 2)^2 ]

 

leg  =  sqrt [ hpotenuse^2 - other leg^2 ]

 

 

cool cool cool
