Answer:Step-by-step explanation:The sides of a 30°-60°-90° right triangle have the ratios …

1 : √3 : 2

The shortest side is half the length of the hypotenuse, so is …

(25 ft)(12 in/ft) = 150 in

The longer side is √3 times that length, so is about …

(150 in)√3 ≈ 259.808 in

The legs of the triangle are 150 inches and about 260 inches.
