Warm Up Find the value of x. Leave your answer in simplest radical form. 7 x 9 x 7 9

7.3: Special Right Triangles Objectives: To use the properties of 45-45-90 and 30- 60-90 right triangles

45°-45°-90° Right Triangle It is an isosceles, right triangle– Both legs are congruent!! THEOREM: The hypotenuse is times the length of the legs IF YOU NEED TO FIND THE HYPOTENUSE: Hypotenuse = (Length of Leg) X IF YOU NEED TO FIND A LEG: Length of leg =

Examples: 1.Find h:2. Find x: 9 h x

Find x: x

1.2. 6 x x

Find x: 10 x

A square has a perimeter of 24 inches. How long is the diagonal?

30°-60°-90° Right Triangle  Shorter Leg is the side opposite the 30° angle  Longer leg is the side opposite the 60° angle Let the shorter leg = n HYPOTENUSE = 2 ∙ SHORTER LEG = 2n LONGER LEG = SHORTER LEG = n

If you need to find the shorter leg (side opposite 30°): If given the hypotenuse: SHORTER LEG = If given the longer leg: SHORTER LEG=
