Re: finding the missing side of a triangle...can you help me in my research about Pythagorean triples..given only a side of right triangle..what is the easiest method to derive the other two sides? #27 20090108 19:18:00
Re: finding the missing side of a trianglePythagorean triples are of the form. In my opinion, given only one side of a rightangled triangle, it is not possible to find the other two sides. Consider this counterexample. (5, 12, 13) are the sides of a right angled triangle. (9, 12, 15) are also the sides of a right angled triangle. If you are given only one side, namely, 12, how would you say which are the other two sides? Character is who you are when no one is looking. #28 20090109 13:21:37

Re: finding the missing side of a triangleIs there some one on that can help me with this problem #30 20090326 01:43:03
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleThe three sides make up a rightangled triangle, so you want to find x such that their lengths are a Pythagorean triple. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #31 20090327 15:11:09
Re: finding the missing side of a triangle
to add to that ... the sides of the triangle will be in the ratio (side opp to 30 deg):(side opp to 60 deg):side opp to 90 deg) = 1:√3:2 .... I love Maths and Music ... dunno which more #32 20090331 09:46:11
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleTHIS IS MAKING ME EVEN MORE CONFUSED!!! YOU HAVE TO EXPLAIN IN NORMAL WORDS BEFORE YOU USE THE MATH TERMS OR NO ONE WILL UNDERSTAND!!! DON'T HELP IF YOU CANT HELP IN ENGLISH!!!GRRRR #33 20090331 16:25:44
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleopp = opposite I love Maths and Music ... dunno which more #34 20090424 06:55:35
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleTHANKZ YALL!!!!!! u guys helped ma a lot #35 20090609 09:23:34
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleim in 8th grade algbra 1 and what you do is take a squared and add it by b squared these are the sides of the triangle it really dosnt matter which order they go in then you square both number s and add them together to get c squared.. then you take that awnser and get the square root of that and there is the awnser for the missing length.

Re: finding the missing side of a triangleOn a 32,55 triangle, what is x in this equation] #39 20100118 05:06:51
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleokay. so my final is in 3 days and im screwed. im looking at my final review packet and their are a few things that are really confusing me. i just don't get it but i catch on easy.. sometimes. if it has meaning. #40 20100118 05:34:21
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleHi trig >; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #41 20100121 17:34:38
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleA right triangle has a leg measuring 52 m and a hypotenuse measuring 63 m. Find the length of the other leg. #42 20100121 17:36:58

Hey man can i get some help #43 20100121 20:03:14

Re: finding the missing side of a triangleThis is for the people who dont understand the pythagorean theorem. How to calculate the missing side of a right triangle. Here is an example.... A = bottom of triangle B = Side of triangle C = missing side........ A = 24 B = 10 now you just sqaure both numbers.... on your calculater if you have one is an X with an exponent 2 above it and that symbol means square.... square both numbers 24 squared = 576 10 squared = 100 both added = 676...... now 676 = 26 squared. If you don't get it now your hopeless. JK #45 20100123 13:08:34
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleHi;
Not exactly, it just means you need more examples and some patience. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #46 20100518 10:29:01
Re: finding the missing side of a triangle
Thanks! That helped SO much!!! #47 20100603 07:40:23
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleits easy dude use the pythagoreon theorem its defined as "the sqaure of hypotenus of a triangle is equal to the sum of sqaure of base and square of perpendicular". #48 20100604 00:25:07
Re: finding the missing side of a triangleWell it seems that a lot of people don't seem to understand which side is which and hence getting confused. when i teach my students, i enphasize on labelling the sides properly before attempting a question. So whenever you have a right angle triangle and you are missing a side, say to yourself that you are going to use pythagoras. #50 20101013 06:01:25
