MM2G1. Students will identify and use special right triangles.

a. Determine the lengths of sides of 30°-60°-90° triangles.

b. Determine the lengths of sides of 45°-45°-90° triangles.

MM2G1a. Determine the lengths of sides of 30°-60°-90° triangles. b. Determine the lengths of sides of 45°-45°-90° triangles.

Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the missing side of each right triangle. Express your answers as a radicals in simplest form.

MM2G1a. Determine the lengths of sides of 30°-60°-90° triangles. b. Determine the lengths of sides of 45°-45°-90° triangles.
• What do you notice about the legs of each triangle?
• These triangles are called ________________ triangles. They are also known as 45-45-90 triangles because:
• What do you notice about the hypotenuse with respect to each leg??
