Right Triangles are special in many ways. Without them, we wouldn't have the Pythagorean Theorem, or Trigonometry! Studying Right Triangles is necessary for discovering more advanced topics in mathematics. Terms Associated with Square Root Functions and The Product Property of Square Roots will give you the tools to solve right triangle problems using the Pythagorean Theorem. Explore the key components of 30-60-90 Triangles, and 45-45-90 Triangles and their unique properties. By delving into applications, equations and key elements specific to Right Triangles, you will establish a solid foundation in Geometry.
