## 45 45 90 Triangle:

It is a special kind of right triangle in which the measure of two interior angles are 45 degrees and the third one is a right angle (90 degrees).

## 45 45 90Triangle Ratios:

Angle Ratios Side Ratios
1 : 1 : 2 (45° : 45° : 90°) 1 : 1 : √2 (a : a : a√2)

## 45 45 90 Triangle Formula:

The base of the formulas for resolving this triangle comes from trigonometry. And our 45 45 90 triangle calculator considered the following equations for calculating the missing parameters of this right triangle:

### Measure of Sides:

As the ratio of the sides is 1:1:√2, the measure of sides is also done by considering the same ratios: If the length of a triangle is a, then

• The measure of the second shorter side is also "b"
• The measure of the third side opposite to the right angle is as follows:

$$a\sqrt{2}$$

### Area of 45 45 90 Special Right Triangle:

$$Area = \dfrac{a^{2}}{2}$$

You can also get calculations for the area of the sector and semicircles by using another area of a sector calculator and the area of a semicircle calculator.

### Perimeter of 45 45 90 Triangle:

P = 2a + c = 2b + c

## 45 45 90 Triangle Rules:

This particular triangle type possesses the following rules:

• A 45 45 90 triangle is also considered an isosceles triangle
• The hypotenuse to the sum of legs ratio is very small for this triangle
• The altitude ratio is maximum when calculated from hypotenuse to the sum of legs

## How To Solve a 45 45 90 Triangle?

Let’s resolve a 45 45 90 triangle having a shorter side length of 5 cm!

### Solution:

As a 45 45 90 triangle has two equal shorter sides, the second side will also be 5 cm.

Length of side a = 5cm (given)

Length of side b = 5cm (assumed)

Length of longest side = 7.07 cm

The area of 45 45 90 triangle is given as under:

$$Area = a^{2} / 2$$

$$Area = 5^{2} / 2$$

Area = 25 / 2

Area = 12.5 cm

Now we have:

P = 2a + c

P = 2*5+7.07

P = 14.07 cm

The 45 45 90 calculator also generates the same results but saves you a lot of time.

## Working of 45 45 90 Triangle Calculator:

## Faqs:

### Are All The Sides of a 45 45 90 Triangle Congruent?

No! Only two shorter sides of the 45 45 90 triangles are congruent because they measure the same. This is because the triangle is isosceles.
