In this blog post, we will take a look at How to solve for a side in right triangles.

Solve Now
There are many ways to find the side length of a right triangle. We are going to focus on two specific cases. Case I When we know 2 sides of the right triangle, use the Pythagorean theorem . Case II We know 1 side and 1 angle of the right

Step 1 The two sides we are using are Opposite (70) and Hypotenuse (w). Step 2 SOHCAHTOA tells us to use Sine. Step 3 Write down: sin 68° = 70/w. Step 4 Solve: The unknown length is on the bottom (the denominator) of the fraction! So we

A right triangle has side lengths of 3 cm and 4 cm. Find the length of the hypotenuse. Substitute . a=3 and b=4 into the Pythagorean Theorem and solve for c. a²+b²=c².
