Solving expressions using 45-45-90 special right triangles

Where a and b are two sides of a triangle, and c is the hypotenuse, the Pythagorean theorem can be written as: a 2 + b 2 = c 2. EX: Given a = 3, c = 5, find b: 3 2 + b 2 = 5 2. 9 + b 2 = 25. b 2 = 16 => b = 4. Law of sines: the ratio of the
