In Exercises 15 to 19, create drawings as needed. Given: ∆ A B C with m ∠ A = m ∠ B = 45 ° and B C = 6 Find: A C and A B

To determine

To find:

AC and AB, for the ABC with mA=mB=45° and BC=6.

Explanation

Approach:

For a right triangle for which the measure of the interior angles 45°, 45°, and 90°, if ‘a’ is the length of measure of one of the leg; opposite to the angle 45°, then the length of the other two sides is given by

Length of the other leg =a

Length of the hypotenuse =a2

In general

Length of the legs are equal.

Length of the hypotenuse =2× (Length of one of the legs)

Calculation:

Given,

ABC with mA=mB=45° and BC=6.

Since, two of the angles mA and mB are 45°, the triangle is a right triangle of 45°-45°-90° type with BC=6.

45°-45°-90° theorem
