Special Right Triangles
30:60:90 Right Triangles

30:60:90 Relationship Given: Equilateral Triangle with side=2, find the altitude. 30º 2 2 x 60º 1 2

30:60:90 Relationship Given: Equilateral Triangle with side=4, find the altitude. 30º 4 4 x 60º 2 4

30:60:90 Relationship Given: Equilateral Triangle with side=10, find the altitude. 30º 10 10 x 60º 5 10

Conclusion - The side opposite the 30º angle is half the hypotenuse
- The side opposite the 60º angle is half the hypotenuse times 2 1 - The ratio of the sides of a 30:60:90 right triangle is 60º 1

Since 30 is the smallest angle, then the 1 goes across from it!
Page 25 Remember, the triangle always has the same ratio for its sides: Remember the relationship the sides have with the angles! The smallest side is across from the smallest angle! Since 30 is the smallest angle, then the 1 goes across from it! Since 60 is the next biggest angle, then the 3 goes across from it! Since 90 is the largest angle, then the 2 goes across from it!

Page 26 30:60:90 Now, since the ratio is always the same, then what did we multiply by? 1: 3 :2 5: 5 3 :10 Five! If we multiply one number in the ratio by 5, we multiply all of them by 5. 𝑦=5 3 𝑥=10
