Based on the measurements provided for each triangle below, determine whether the measure of must be more than, less than, or equal to .

See problem 4-28 for more help.

  1. A right triangle with a base of 4 and height of 3. Angle x is opposite the side of 3.

    Think about what the slope ratio must be for the angle to be .

  1. A right triangle with legs 18 and 18 and 1 angle, labeled, x.

    Use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve for the missing leg. What does this length tell you about the angle's measure?

  1. A right triangle with legs 2 and 8. Angle x opposite the side that is 8.

    Use the same method as in part (a).

    More than a.
