**Lesson 56: Special Right Triangles**

30°- 60°- 90°

2
30°- 60°- 90° The triangle is based on an equilateral triangle with sides of 2 units. 2 60°

3
30°- 60°- 90° The altitude (also the angle bisector, median, and perpendicular bisector) cuts the triangle into two congruent triangles. 2 60° 30° 30° 1 1

4
30°- 60°- 90° 60° 30° This creates the triangle with a hypotenuse a short leg and a long leg. Long Leg Hypotenuse Short Leg

5
30°- 60°- 90° Practice We see that the hypotenuse is twice the short leg. 60° 30° 2 We can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the long leg. 1

**2 3 1 30°- 60°- 90° Practice A2 + B2 = C2 A2 + 12 = 22 A2 + 1 = 4**

7
**Conclusion: the ratio of the sides in a 30-60-90 triangle is 1- 3 -2**

30°- 60°- 90° 60° 30° Conclusion: the ratio of the sides in a triangle is 2 3 1

**Properties of a 30°- 60°- 90° Triangles Page 368**

In a 30°- 60°- 90° triangle, the length of the hypotenuse is twice the length of the short leg, and the length of the longer leg is the length of the shorter leg times 3 . 2x x 3 x

9
30°- 60°- 90° Practice 60° 30° The key is the length of the short side. 8 4 3 Hypotenuse = short leg * 2 4 Long Leg = short leg * 3

10
**10 5 3 5 30°- 60°- 90° Practice Hypotenuse = short leg * 2**

5 3 5 Long Leg = short leg * 3

11
**14 7 3 7 30°- 60°- 90° Practice Hypotenuse = short leg * 2**

7 3 7 Long Leg = short leg * 3

12
**2 3 3 3 30°- 60°- 90° Practice Hypotenuse = short leg * 2**

2 3 3 Hypotenuse = short leg * 2 3 Long Leg = short leg * 3

13
**2 10 30 10 30°- 60°- 90° Practice Hypotenuse = short leg * 2**

2 10 30 Hypotenuse = short leg * 2 10 Long Leg = short leg * 3

14
