Measurements:

Leg:52.5 cm
Leg:29.7 cm
Hypotenuse:60.3 cm
Math:
a² + b²= c²
52.5² + 29.7²= c²
2,756.25 + 882.09
= 3,638.34
√3,638.34 = 60.3
Triangle 4
Measurements:

Leg: 21 cm
Leg: 20.7 cm
Hypotenuse: 29.5 cm
Math:
a² + b²= c²
21² + b²= 29.5²
441 + b²= 870.25
870.25 - 441
=429.25
√429.25 = 20.7

Math
a² + b²= c²
12.5² + b²= 18.5²
156.25-156.25 + b²= 342.25-156.25
√b²= √186
b= 13.64
