your longer leg now how do I know that

this is my longer leg well if I look at

my angle measures 30 degrees is my

smallest measure which means the side

that is opposite of 30 will be my

shortest leg the next longest will be my

next largest angle and since 60 degrees

is smaller than 90 60 degrees is my next

longest leg and then of course our

hypotenuse is always the longest side in

our triangle so to go from our shorter

leg to our longer leg I need to multiply

by the square root of 3 so if this side

is let's say 5 units then your longer

leg will be 5 times the square root of 3

now let's say you want to find your

hypotenuse to go from your shorter leg
