**Part A: Identify the Type of Special Right Triangle**

1. Determine whether the following triangles are special right triangles. If yes, identify which type they are (45-45-90 or 30-60-90).

a) Triangle ABC with angles: ∠A = ∠B = 45°, ∠C = 90°

b) Triangle XYZ with angles: ∠X = ∠Y = 30°, ∠Z = 90°

c) Triangle DEF with angles: ∠D = 60°, ∠E = 30°, ∠F = 90°

2. For each of the following triangles, determine the missing side lengths using the appropriate ratios for special right triangles.

a) Triangle PQR is a 30-60-90 triangle with PQ = 6 cm. Find the lengths of QR and PR.

b) Triangle STU is a 45-45-90 triangle with ST = 8 inches. Find the lengths of SU and TU.

c) Triangle VWX is a 30-60-90 triangle with WX = 12 meters. Find the lengths of VW and VX.

3. The hypotenuse of a 45-45-90 triangle is 10 cm. Find the lengths of the legs.

4. The hypotenuse of a 30-60-90 triangle is 18 inches. Find the lengths of the legs.

**Part B: Applications of Special Right Triangles**

5. A ladder is leaning against a wall. The angle between the ladder and the ground is 60°. If the ladder is 12 feet long, how far is the base of the ladder from the wall?

6. An equilateral triangle is inscribed in a circle. What type of triangle is formed by connecting the center of the circle to two vertices of the equilateral triangle? Find the measure of each angle.

7. A ramp is being constructed to access a stage. If the height of the stage is 3 feet and the angle of inclination of the ramp is 30°, find the length of the ramp.

8. An architect is designing a triangular park. The park has a 90° corner and two sides that are 45 meters and 45 meters in length. What is the length of the diagonal of the triangular park?

9. A right triangle has legs of length 7 cm and 7√3 cm. Find the hypotenuse length.

10. A 30-60-90 triangle has a hypotenuse of length 20 units. Find the lengths of the legs.
