For the 30 ° - 60 ° - 90 ° triangle shown, suppose that X Z = a . Find: a) Y Z b) X Y To determine

a) To find:

YZ, for the 30°-60°-90° triangle shown, suppose that XZ=a.

Explanation

Approach:

For a right triangle, for which the measure of the interior angles 30°, 60°, and 90°; if ‘a’ is the length of measure of the shorter leg; opposite to the angle 30°, then the length of the other two sides is given by

Length of the longer leg (opposite to 60°) =a3

Length of the hypotenuse (opposite to 90°)=2a.

In general

Length of the longer leg =3× (Length of the shorter leg)

Length of the hypotenuse =2× (Length of the shorter leg)

Calculation:

Given,

A 30°-60°-90° triangle XYZ with XZ=a.

30°-60°-90° theorem

To determine

b) To find:

XY, for the 30°-60°-90° triangle shown, suppose that XZ=a.
