    In a 30-60-90 triangle the sides always have the same proportions

    Short leg = x

    hypotenuse  = 2x

    long leg = x√3

    ----------------------------

    In this case the hypotenuse is 5

    c = 5

    2x = 5

    x = 2.5

    The short leg

    a = x 

    a = 2.5 <––––––– 

    The long leg

    b = x√3 

    b = 2.5√3 <––––––
