The hypotenuse of a right triangle measures \(6\sqrt2\) inches and one angle is 45°. What is the number of square inches in the area of the triangle Pls Help pls.

A right triangle with a 45 degree angle   has  ANOTHER 45 degree angle...so two sides are the same length

 

Pythag theorem

x^2 + x^2 = (6 sqrt2)^2

2 x^2 = 72

x = 6   =  side length                  area = 1/2 b h =    1/2 (6 x 6) = 18 in 2
