A triangle has sides with lengths 8, 15, and 17.
- Verify this is a Pythagorean triple.
- Approximate the acute angles in this triangle.
Kiran is flying a kite. He gets tired, so he stakes the kite into the ground. The kite is on a string that is 18 feet long and makes a 30 degree angle with the ground. How high is the kite?
Triangle \(ABC\) has a right angle at \(C\). Select all measurements which would mean it has a hypotenuse with a length of 10 units.
Angle $A$ is 20 degrees, $BC$ is 2 units
$AC$ is 7 units, $BC$ is 3 units
Angle $B$ is 50 degrees, $BC$ is 4 units
Angle $A$ is 30 degrees, $BC$ is 5 units
$AC$ is 8 units, $BC$ is 6 units
What is a reasonable approximation for angle \(B\) if the ratio of the adjacent leg divided by the hypotenuse is 0.45?
Estimate the values to complete the table.
|angle||adjacent leg \(\div\) hypotenuse||opposite leg \(\div\) hypotenuse||opposite leg \(\div\) adjacent leg|
What is the length of side \(AB\)?
What is the length of the square’s side?
$6 \sqrt2$ units
Find the lengths of segments \(AD\) and \(BD\). Then check your answers using a different method.
