45 45 90 triangle theorem
45˚-45˚-90˚ Triangle Theorem

1. x= 26ft (312 in.) by 45-45-90 Theorem

2. Height= x+5’4” (64 in.)

  • Chapter 7 Strategy of Trigonometry: height=24.7ft or 296.8 in.

  • 45˚-45˚-90˚ Triangle Theorem: height=31.3ft or 376 in.

  • Chapter 6 Strategy of Similarity: height=28.9ft or 346.6 in.

  • The 45˚-45˚-90˚ Triangle Theorem produced the most accurate results because it is a theorem that always works and gives exact answers as long as the triangle is a 45˚-45˚-90˚ triangle.

  • The preferred strategy was the 45˚-45˚-90˚ Triangle Theorem because it was easy to create the triangle and the math was simpler than the other strategies.

  • The Chapter 7 Strategy of Trigonometry is more adaptable because the triangle does not need to have certain elements besides having a right angle.

  • I would recommend to use the Chapter 7 Strategy of Trigonometry because it is more likely that you will only be able to collect data in the real world that can be easily put into the trigonometry strategy.
