7.1 Apply the Pythagorean Theorem.
What is the Pythagorean Theorem? 𝑎2 + 𝑏 2 = 𝑐 2 , where a, b are the legs and c is the hypotenuse.
Pythagorean triple? It is a right triangle that has 3,4,5 or 5,12,13 or 8,15,17 or 7,24,25 and their various multiples.

7.2 Use the converse of the Pythagorean Theorem.
How do you know if the triangle is a right triangle? Use the Pythagorean formula and see if the right side equals the left
side. Remember that the longest side is the hypotenuse and takes on the letter c.
How do you tell if the triangle is an acute triangle? Use the Pythagorean formula with 𝑎2 + 𝑏 2 &gt; 𝑐 2.
How do you tell if the triangle is an obtuse triangle? Use the Pythagorean formula with 𝑎2 + 𝑏 2 &lt; 𝑐 2 .

7.4 Special right Triangles.
Create a 45&deg; − 45&deg; − 90&deg; triangle. Let 1 be the side of the leg and use the Pythagorean theorem to find the hypotenuse.
Suppose the leg is 3 what is the hypotenuse? Suppose the leg is x what is the hypotenuse?
Create a 30&deg; − 60&deg; − 90&deg; triangle. Let 1 be the side of the leg opposite the 30&deg; and 2 (double)be the length of the
hypotenuse. Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of the side opposite the 60⁰ angle. Let 3 be the side of the
leg opposite the 30&deg; and 6 (double) be the length of the hypotenuse. Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of
the side opposite the 60⁰ angle. Let x be the side of the leg opposite the 30&deg; and 2x (double) be the length of the
hypotenuse. Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of the side opposite the 60⁰ angle.

7.5 Apply the tangent ratio.
What is a trigonometric ratio? It is a ratio of the lengths of two sides in a right triangle.
What is a tangent? It is the ratio of the lengths of the legs in a right triangle that is a constant for a given angle measure.

7.6 Apply the sine and cosine ratios.
The sine and cosine ratios are trigonometric ratios for acute angles that involve the lengths of a leg and the hypotenuse
of a right triangle.

What is an angle of elevation? If you look up at an object, it is the angle your line of sight makes with a horizontal line.
What is an angle of depression? If you look down at an object, it is the angle your line of sight makes with the horizon.
What is the relationship between the angle of elevation and the angle of depression? Yes, they are congruent by
alternate interior angles.

7.7 Solve right triangles.
What does it mean to solve a right triangle? It means to find the measures of all its sides and angles.
Use inverse trigonometric ratios to solve the triangle:
