Using the cosine rule the length of the 3rd side works out as 7.25 mm rounded to two decimal places.

### In a scalene triangle the longest side is opposite the angle with the largest measure true of false?

True.
In any triangle, the longest side is always opposite the largest
angle; the shortest side is always opposite the shortest angle; and
the middle length side is always opposite the middle size
angle.
In an isosceles triangle, there is no middle length side; and
the two sides of equal length are opposite the angles of equal
size.
In an equilateral triangle, all sides are the same length, as
are all the angles.

### Why hypotenuse more than other two sides?

We don't think about this very often, but it turns out that in
any triangle, the order of the angles by length is the same as the
order of the sides opposite them by length. What I mean is: -- the
shortest side is opposite the smallest angle
-- the medium side is opposite the medium angle
-- the longest side is opposite the largest angle In a right
triangle, the right angle has to be the largest angle(**). So the
side opposite it ... called the hypotenuse ... has to be the
longest side.
============================================================ (**)
Here's why the right angle has to be the largest angle: In any
triangle, the inside angles all add up to 180 degrees. In a right
triangle, one of the angles is 90 degrees. That leaves only another
90 degrees to split up between the other two angles, so both of
them must be less than 90 degrees.

### How do you find the angle measurements of a triangle if you have all the side lengths- which SOH CAH TOA do i use?

with all the sides, you could use any, use SOH :
( sin of angle = opposite / hypotonuse)
assuming its a right angle triangle, then select either of the
(non right angle) angles, divide the length of the side opposite
this angle by the length of the hypotonuse ( longest side, opposite
the right angle), then find the inverse SIN of this number on your
calculator, this is the angle. Since total internal angles always =
180 degrees, and right angle = 90 degrees then final angle is
calculated angle subtracted from 90 degrees.

### How do you find the length of the sides if the right triangle has 60 degrees?

Since the triangle is a right triangle, then it has a 90 degree
angle. Given the fact that another of the angles is 60 degrees, the
third angle MUST be 30 degrees. This is because the three angles in
a triangle must add up to 180 degrees total.
So you are talking about one of the "special" triangles... a
30-60-90 triangle. In a 30-60-90 triangle, the ratios of the
lengths never changes, and here is how your figure them out.
Find the 30 degree angle. The leg opposite that angle should be
of length 1.
Find the 60 degree angle. The leg opposite that angle should be
sqrt(3).
Find the hypotenuse. Its length should be 2.
So for a 30-60-90 triangle, the lengths are 1-sqrt(3)-2 OR any
multiple of this.

### Which triangle has an angle that measures 45 and 90 degrees?

Well, it doesn't exactly have "an angle that measures 45 and 90
degrees".
It has one angle that measures 45 degrees, and another angle
that measures 90 degrees.
That's an isosceles right triangle. The third angle is also 45
degrees, and
the length of each leg is 70.7% of the length of the hypotenuse.
