This Week's Work : Week 13 - for Inquisitive Young Mathletes

First, review target level questions you got wrong last week and practice counting systematically.

Right triangle inscribed in a circle proof from Khan Academy

Review 30-60-90 special right triangle from AOPS and practice getting the two legs/hypotenuse fast.

Review 45-45-90 special right triangle from AOPS

The harder questions are the ones when given the length to the 60 degree of the 30-60-90 special right triangle or
the length to the 90 degree of the 45-45-90 special right triangle so make sure you can get them fast and right.

See if you can solve all these questions as they are countdown problems.
(hint : lots of Pythagorean triples or applicable special right triangle ratio concept)

from Regents prep (high school level)
