**Find hypotenuse length in a 45-45-90 triangle EXAMPLE 1**

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

**Find leg lengths in a 45-45-90 triangle EXAMPLE 2**

o EXAMPLE 2 Find the lengths of the legs in the triangle. SOLUTION By the Base Angles Theorem and the Corollary to the Triangle Sum Theorem, the triangle is a triangle. o Triangle Theorem o hypotenuse = leg 2 2 5 = x Substitute. 2 5 = x Divide each side by 2 5 = x Simplify.
