  2. 2.

  3. 3. Opposite the Angle? <ul><li>The opposite angle can be seen by drawing a line cutting through the angle to the other side of the triangle. </li></ul><ul><li>90 degree angles are noted by a small square </li></ul><ul><li>As seen here the opposite in this case is the hypotenuse also, but only because it is opposite of the 90 degree angle. </li></ul>
  4. 4. 30-60-90 <ul><li>The 30-60-90 can easily be distinguished from the other special triangle by the three noticeably different angles. </li></ul><ul><li>There are two legs in the picture. The letter a notates the length of one leg and given this length, the length of the other leg is found by multiplying </li></ul><ul><li>Hypotenuse length is equal to </li></ul>
  5. 5. 45-45-90 <ul><li>The other special triangle is a 45-45-90 and is easy to distinguish due to the equal side length of the two legs </li></ul><ul><li>Given a leg length of n, the other leg will be the same length and the hypotenuse will always be </li></ul>
