## Grade 11 Nonlinear Equations and Functions CCSS: HSG-GPE.A.1

In the first question, a right triangle was created, using the radius of the circle as the hypotenuse, such that one leg had a slope of zero, and the other leg's slope was undefined. Why was this?
1. This is the only right triangle that can be formed for the given hypotenuse.
2. This is the only right triangle that can be formed for the given hypotenuse that is completely inside the given circle.
3. Using a right triangle with legs that have either a slope of zero or an undefined slope means that they represent the vertical and horizontal distance of the hypotenuse.
4. There is no need for this triangle, but it makes the question more difficult because it results in two possible correct answers.
