**UNIT QUESTION: What patterns can I find in right triangles?**

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
**5.1 Special Right Triangles**

Learning Task – Part 1

3
**5.1 Special Right Triangles**

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

5
**Special Right Triangles**

Short Leg:Long Leg:Hypotenuse

6
**We will use a reference triangle to set up a proportion then solve.**

Right Triangle 60 2 1 30 This is our reference triangle for the triangle. We will use a reference triangle to set up a proportion then solve.

7
Right Triangle 60 2x x 30

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

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

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

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

12
**Perimeter = 27.71 inches a = 4.168 in., so 2a = 9.238 in. 2a a√3 a**

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