Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2once you've done that it's easy to know what kind of triangle it is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you 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\[a=b\]
