First we should find out length of the final side

00:26

by using the Pythagorean Theorem - A sqaured plus B squared equals C squared

00:29

we can determine that root 2 squared plus

00:32

X squared equals 2 squared. That's 2 plus x squared equals 4...

00:36

Subtract 2 from both sides and X squared equals 2.

00:40

Take the square root of both sides and X equals the square root of 2.

00:43

Awesome. That means we have an isosceles triangle where two sides are equal

00:47

better yet when two sides are equal that means that 2

00:50

angles are equal. Even better we already know that one angle is 90 degrees

00:55

since the triangle is a right triangle, which means

00:59

that the other two angles have to measure 45 degrees each

01:02

and we have our answer it's C.
