## What is a leg?

(Entry 1 of 3) 1: a limb of an animal used especially for supporting the body and for walking: such as. a(1): one of the paired vertebrate limbs that in bipeds extend from the top of the thigh to the foot. (2): the part of such a limb between the knee and foot.

## What is the leg of a triangle?

The legs of a right triangle are the two sides that intersect to determine the right angle. The remaining side is called the hypotenuse.

## What are the legs of an angle?

The legs (sides) of an angle are the two lines that make it up. In the figure above, the line segments AB and BC are the legs of the angle ∠ABC.

## What is a leg of an isosceles triangle?

A triangle with two sides of equal length is an isosceles triangle. The two equal sides of an isosceles triangle are known as ‘ legs ‘ whereas the third or unequal side is known as the ‘base’.

## What is the main function of the legs?

Leg, limb or appendage of an animal, used to support the body, provide locomotion, and, in modified form, assist in capturing and eating prey (as in certain shellfish, spiders, and insects).

## Why is a leg called a leg?

Etymology is the study of the origins of words. We say ” legs of darts” because one definition of leg is “a section or stage of a journey or process.” This use of the word leg comes from language used to describe sailing, i.e. the distance traveled in one single trip, usually only a segment of the overall voyage.

## What is the difference between the legs and hypotenuse of a triangle?

For a right triangle, the side that is opposite of the right angle is called the hypotenuse. This side will always be the longest side of the right triangle. The other two (shorter) sides are called legs.

## Are the legs of a right triangle equal?

Pythagorean theorem In any right triangle, the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares whose sides are the two legs (the two sides that meet at a right angle).

## What variable’s represent the legs on a right triangle?

The variables a, b, and c are used to represent the sides of a right triangle. a and b are the ” legs ” of the triangle, which are the two sides that make up the 90 degree angle.

## What are the 7 types of angles?

The 7 types of angles are: right angles, acute angles, obtuse angles, straight angles, reflex angles, full angles, and complementary angles.

## What is called angle?

In geometry, an angle can be defined as the figure formed by two rays meeting at a common end point. Here, the angle below is ∠AOB. Angles are measured in degrees, using a protractor.

## What is Angle ABC?

Angle ABC is a straight angle. Angles ABD and DBC are right angles. Angles CBE and DBE are acute angles. Angle ABE is an obtuse angle. In this triangle, angle b is a right angle and angle c = 40°.

## How do you find the legs of a right isosceles triangle?

An isosceles right triangle is an isosceles triangle and a right triangle. This means that it has two congruent sides and one right angle. Therefore, the two congruent sides must be the legs. From this we can conclude that the hypotenuse length is the length of a leg multiplied by begin{align*}sqrt{2}end{align*}.
