30°- 60°- 90° Triangles Theorem 7.9 In a 30°- 60°- 90° Triangle the hypotenuse is twice the length of the smallest leg, while the longer leg is

Finding the sides of a 30°- 60°- 90° Triangle 1. Identify what sides of the triangle are known (the hypotenuse, smaller leg or the larger leg). 2. Hypotenuse = 2(smaller leg) 3. Larger leg = (smaller leg) 8
