    for isosceles 2 sides are the same. for a right triangle a^2+b^2=c^2 where a and b are the legs and c is the hypotenuse. so that's two things to check...

    once you've done that it's easy to know what kind of triangle it is.

    |dw:1324940623672:dw| use cos rule to find the angles

    you actually don't need the angles Just check the two shorter sides a and b against the larger side c: if\[c^2=a^2+b^2\]the it is a right triangle. If\[c^2>a^2+b^2\]it is an obtuse triangle. If\[c^2<a^2+b^2\]it is an acute one. It is only isosceles if\[a=b\]
