9.7 Special Right Triangles
• Objective
• After studying this section, you will be able to
identify the ratio of side lengths in a
30-60-90 triangle and in a 45-45-90
triangle.

Theorem In a triangle whose angles have the
measures 30, 60, and 90, the lengths of the
sides opposite these angles can be represented by
a, , and 2a
respectively. (30-60-90 Triangle
Theorem)

Summary State how to classify triangles.
Explain in your own words the Pythagorean
Theorem. Classwork Break up into groups of 3
or 4. All groups will be given a special right
triangle problem and a designated whiteboard.
Once the group has solved for the missing sides,
1 representative will hold up the groups
whiteboard. The group with the most points will
be dubbed Special Right Triangles Royalty!
