Thus, two of the angles must also be equal. Since one angle is already 90 degrees the other two angles must add up to 90 degrees also because the sum of the angles of ANY triangle is 180. Thus, the other two angles must be 45 and 45. Finally, there is a theorem about a 45-45-90 triangle that says if the smaller sides are $\displaystyle x$ then the biggest side (hypotenuse) is $\displaystyle x\sqrt{2}$
