1 Math II UNIT QUESTION: What patterns can I find in right triangles? Standard: MM2G1, MM2G2 Today’s Question: How do I find the length of a side of a right triangle with only one side and an angle given? Standard: MM2G1.a

2 Learning Task – Part 1

3 You will be able to find the lengths of sides of special right triangles And

4

5 Short Leg:Long Leg:Hypotenuse

6 Right Triangle This is our reference triangle for the triangle. We will use a reference triangle to set up a proportion then solve.

7 Right Triangle x 2x2x 30  60 

8 60 30 x y 8 Ex: 1 Solve for x and y. 2a a a√3

9 60 30 x 24 Solve for x and y Ex: 2 2a a a√3y

10 60 30 x 14 x = 7 Ex: 3 Solve for x and y. y 2a a a√3 y = 7√3

11 60 30 x x = 5 Ex: 4 Solve for x and y y y = 10 2a a a√3

12 a = in., so 2a = in. Extension Problem The altitude of an equilateral triangle is 8 inches. Find the perimeter of the triangle. 2a a 8 60° 30° a√3 Perimeter = inches
