## 5.8 Applying Special Right TrianglesTheorem 5-8-1 45*-45*-90* Triangle Theorem -
In a 45*-45*-90* Triangle, both legs are congruent, and the length of the hypotenuse is the length of a leg times the square root of 2. Theorem 5-8-2 30*-60*-90* Triangle Theorem - In a 30*-60*-90* triangle, the length of the hypotenuse is 2 times the length of the shorter leg, and the length of the longer leg is the length of the shorter leg times the square root of 3. |
