For the 45 ° - 45 ° - 90 ° triangle shown, suppose that A C = a . Find: a) B C b) A B To determine

a) To find:

BC, for the 45°-45°-90° triangle shown, suppose that AC=a.

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,

A 45°-45°-90° triangle ABC with AC=a.

To determine

b) To find:

AB, for the 45°-45°-90° triangle shown, suppose that AC=a.
