#### 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.

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

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

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

Verified

#### Step 1

1 of 2

From Item 1,

$\textbf{(a)}$

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

$\textbf{(b)}$

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

$\textbf{(c)}$

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