let ac= sqrt 2 xz= 2swrt 2
area would 2 and other would 1/2
so 2/1/2 = 4

a 45-45-90 triangle is isosceles. Two sides are of equal length (denote with x). The hypotenuse is x√2 long.

Use numbers to be confident with your answer

One triangle can have 2·2·2√2
The larger triangle has a hypotenuse of 2·2√2=4√2. Thus, its two other sides are both of length 4

Area of a triangle is 0.5·base·height
0.5·2·2=2
0.5·4·4=8
8/2=4
