# What is the length of the missing leg in this right triangle 15 and 9?

## What is the length of the missing leg in this right triangle 15 and 9?

Plugging in the variables, 92+b2=152 . 92=81 . 152=225 .

What is the length of the hypotenuse if the legs are 9 and 12?

The length of the hypotenuse is 15 feet.

### What triangle is formed when the length of its sides is 15 12 and 9 respectively?

Explanation: By virtue of the Pythagorean Theorem, in a right triangle the sum of the squares of the smaller two sides equals the square of the largest side. Only 9, 12, and 15 fit this rule.

What is the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle if the legs are 15 cm and 20 cm?

25cm = C which is the hypotenuse.

#### What is the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle 15cm 8cm?

Hence hypotenuse of right Triangle is 17 cm.

Is a triangle with sides of lengths 16 30 and 35 a right triangle?

And as we can see, the two sides do not equal each other, so this means the sides do not make a right triangle.

## What is the leg of a right triangle?

a and b are the “legs” of the triangle, which are the two sides that make up the 90 degree angle. c is the “hypotenuse” of the triangle, and is the side of the triangle that is opposite the right angle (another way to say a 90º angle is “right angle”). The hypotenuse is also the longest side of the right triangle.

Does 9cm 12cm and 15cm make a right triangle?

Therefore yes, it is a right triangle.

### Is the hypotenuse always the longest side of a triangle?

Yes, the hypotenuse is always the longest side, but only for right angled triangles. For isosceles triangles, the two equal sides are known as the legs, while in an equilateral triangle all sides are known simply as sides.

Which is the longest side of a right triangle?

A hypotenuse is the longest side of a right triangle. It’s the side that is opposite to the right angle (90°).

#### How do you find the hypotenuse of an isosceles right triangle?

How do I find the hypotenuse of isosceles right triangle? 1 Find the length of one of the non-hypotenuse sides. 2 Square the length of the side. 3 Double the result of the previous step. 4 Square root the result of step 3. This is the length of the hypotenuse.

How do you find the hypotenuse of a given angle?

How do I find hypotenuse with sin? 1 Perform the sin operation on the angle (not the right angle). 2 Divide the length of the side opposite the angle from step 1 by the result of step 1. 3 The result is the hypotenuse.
