Some Thoughts a solution, ? if unique | Comment 1 of 2
If you start with a 30-60-90 triangle, 
draw a line from the right angle perpendicular to the hypotenuse.
This divides the original triangle into 2 30-60-90 triangles with the ratio of corresponding sides being √3.

I do not know if this is the only solution.
