I would assume ac is the hypotenuse , then ab would be one of the legs (both legs are the same length)

 

Pythagorean theorem says     leg1^2 + leg2^2  = hyp^2

      since  leg1 = leg2  this becomes

                2 (leg1)^2 = 30^2

                   (leg1)^2 = 450

                    leg1=ab = sqrt450=21.21 units

Yor assumption was correct with ac being the hypotenuse. 

 

 

Thank you.
