Name: _______________________________________
Block: __________
Solve for missing ANGLE
Solving for missing SIDES
1.) Given two angles, subtract from
________ to find the 3rd
1) Pythagorean Theorem: When given _____ _____________.
2) Special Right Triangle: _______________ & _______________
3) Trigonometry: _____________________
***Last resort because a results in a decimal which is __________
__________________ than a radical!
2) Trigonometry: The missing
angle is usually referred to as
______________________.
*Use the _________________ trig
functions:
Pythagorean Theorem:
 Only works with
triangles
**The _____________________ is
across from the right angle and is
always the ______________ side.**
Practice: Find the measure of the third/missing side of the following triangles. Leave answers as radicals if
necessary. NO DECIMALS!

GIVEN: One Side of a Right triangle and a Special Case Angle: 45˚, 30˚, or 60˚
Special Right Triangles: There are two special right triangles.
Case 1: 45-45-90: ________________________________________________________
Example:

Trig! Remember, when finding a side length, try Pthag. Thm. or a Special Right BEFORE trig!
GIVEN:
 One Side of a Right triangle and a Non-Special Angle: (NOT 45˚, 30˚, or 60˚)
 ***Two Sides of a Right triangle and you need to find an angle
The ratios formed by the
sides have names/labels:
