You can form exterior angles from right angle in the triangles too right, then use the z to prove its right triangle?

I found that this lesson was somewhat confusing. Just trying to figure out the longest side, and short sides caused me to get the wrong answers. This is because I would compare it to the previous example we did in class. But after you figure out the long side, short side, and hypotenuse, all you need to do is follow the rule to get the answer for each.
