EXAMPLE 1 Find hypotenuse length in a 45-45-90 triangle o o o Find the length of the hypotenuse. a. SOLUTION hypotenuse = leg 2 = 8 2 Substitute. 45-45-90 Triangle Theorem o o o By the Triangle Sum Theorem, the measure of the third angle must be 45. Then the triangle is a 45-45-90 triangle, so by Theorem 7.8, the hypotenuse is 2 times as long as each leg. oo o o a.
