kitty<3: 6 is the short leg and **y** is the hypotenuse. Special right triangles

30 60 90 triangle

*I changed the variable for the hypotenuse to make it less confusing:)

So the side lengths for any 30 60 90 degree triangle is:

short leg: x

long leg: x√3

hypotenuse: 2x

If the short leg x is 6, the hypotenuse would be 2x, or 2(6)
