If a ≤ b <c is the length of the sides of a right triangle, then:
Check the equality:
It's a right triangle.
Using the converse of Pythagoras
If the square of the longest side equals the sum of the squares on the other 2 sides then the triangle is right.
longest side = 39
39² = 1521
36² + 15² = 1296 + 225 = 1521
The triangle is right since 36² + 15² = 39²
D) This triangle is a right triangle: 60^2+144^2 - 156^2 = 0
This is the same as saying 60^2 + 144^2 = 156^2
You would use the pythagorean theorem. In this case, a = 60, b = 144 and c = 156. The longest side is always the value of c. The order for the values of 'a' and 'b' do not matter. Convention usually has 'a' being the smaller of the two.
i jut took the test
d) the triangle is a right triangle 60 squared +144 squared= 156 squared
156 squared is the hypothenuse
so 156= c
D. This is a right triangle because 36^2 + 15^2 = 39^2
1521 = 1521
D.) This triangle is a right triangle: 60 squared + 144 squared = 156 squared.
D.This triangle is a right triangle: 36 squared + 39 squared = 15 squared. This triangle is a right triangle: 36 squared + 15 squared = 39 squared.
i took the test ang
d got 100
If it is a right triangle, by pythagorous theorem, 39^2 = 36^2 + 15^2
or, 36^2 + 15^2 - 39^2 = 0
