# Solving Right Triangles

**Instructions:**

When you are asked to solve a triangle it simply means to find any missing information.

Begin by using trigonometric ratios (remember SOH CAH TOA) to solve for whichever side or angle is easiest. Once you have one angle you can find the other angle since it is complimentary to the known angle. You can also use the Pythagorean theorem if you know the length of 2 sides.

When a triangle is solved all 3 angles and all 3 side lengths will be shown.
