| there is such a property, in a triangle the side lying opposite an angle of 30 degrees is equal to half of the hypotenuse

We denote the height as x, which means the hypotenuse is 2x

Let’s compose the equation using the Pythagorean theorem.

9 + x ^ 2 = 4x ^ 2

3 ^ 2 = 9

x ^ 2 = 3

So the height is equal to the root of 3
