Question

In each column of the table in Item 1, the ratios that you wrote are equal. Express the ratios from the three columns as decimal numbers rounded to the nearest tenth.

 length of opposite leg  length of hypotenuse =\frac { \text { length of opposite leg } } { \text { length of hypotenuse } } =

 length of adjacent leg  length of hypotenuse =\frac { \text { length of adjacent leg } } { \text { length of hypotenuse } } =

 length of opposite leg  length of adjacent leg =\frac { \text { length of opposite leg } } { \text { length of adjacent leg } } =

Step 1

1 of 2

From Item 1,

(a)\textbf{(a)}

length of opposite leglength of hypotenuse=45=0.8\dfrac{\text{length of opposite leg}}{\text{length of hypotenuse}}=\dfrac{4}{5}=\color{#c34632}{0.8}

(b)\textbf{(b)}

length of adjacent leglength of hypotenuse=35=0.6\dfrac{\text{length of adjacent leg}}{\text{length of hypotenuse}}=\dfrac{3}{5}=\color{#c34632}{0.6}

(c)\textbf{(c)}

length of opposite leglength of adjacent leg=431.3(1)\dfrac{\text{length of opposite leg}}{\text{length of adjacent leg}}=\dfrac{4}{3}\approx \color{#c34632}{1.3}\color{white}{\tag{1}}
