CHAPTER 8 RIGHT TRIANGLES
8.4 SPECIAL RIGHT TRIANGLES

SPECIAL RIGHT TRIANGLES
We will learn about 2 kinds of triangles that are well known in Geometry: 45° - 45° - 90° triangle, and 30° - 60° - 90° triangle. These triangles are identified by their angle measures and have sides with specific relationships.

THEOREM 8-6 45° a√2 a a a 45° a a

EXAMPLES Find the value of x
10√2 3√2 x 45° 10 x 45° 6

THEOREM 8-7 THEOREM 8-7 30° - 60° - 90° Theorem
In a 30° - 60° - 90° triangle, the hypotenuse is twice as long as the shorter leg, and the longer leg is √3 times as long as the short leg. 30° 2a a√3 60° a

EXAMPLE Find x and y. x = 18 x = 3√3 y = 9√3 y = 6√3 9 x x 9 30° 60° y
