Explanation:   ### Example Question #21 : Isosceles Triangles An isosceles triangle has a hypotenuse of . Find the length of its sides, .    Not enough information to solve Explanation:

An isosceles triangle is a special triangle due to the values of its angles. These triangles are referred to as triangles and their side lengths follow a specific pattern that states you can calculate the length of the legs of an isoceles triangle by dividing the length of the hypotenuse by the square root of 2   ### Example Question #31 : Triangles The measure of the sides of this isosceles right triangle are . Find the measure of its hypotenuse, . Not enough information to solve    Explanation:

An isosceles triangle is a special triangle due to the values of its angles.  These triangles are referred to as triangles and their side lenghts follow a specific pattern that states you can calculate the length of the hypotenuse of an isoceles triangle by multiplying the length of one of the legs by the square root of 2.
