So, Triangle have two angles which differs from each others by 45 degrees opposite sides of those two angles are 5 and 2 what is the length of the longest side ?

Didn't notice we got answers for those problems. 5,4m is length of hypotenuse and angles are 21,5.. 66,5.. and 91,9.. Well, thanks for help though Last edited by skipjack; April 22nd, 2017 at 07:45 PM.

Good to have forum like this. Know where to turn if math problems get too sticky. Last edited by skipjack; April 23rd, 2017 at 06:02 AM.
