Title: Special Right Triangles

1
Special Right Triangles
• 5.1 (M2)

2
Pythagorean Theorem
3
Right Triangle Theorems
• 45o-45o-90o Triangle Theorem
• Hypotenuse is times as long as each leg
• 30o-60o-90o Triangle Theorem
• Hypotenuse is twice as long as the shorter leg,
and the longer leg is times as long as the
shorter leg
