One angle of a right triangle measures 60°. The side opposite this angle measures 15 inches.

What is the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle?

Well it is a 30-60-90 triangle.

We  have  a 30-60-90  right triangle

 

Side  opposite 60° angle =  15

 

Side opposite of 30°  angle =  15/√3

 

Side opposite the 90° angle  = 2 times the side opposite the 30° angle = 2*15 / √3  =  30 / √3 = the hypotenuse

 

cool cool cool
