    3,4,5 The sum f squares of shorter sides is equal to the square of the longest side. That is, \[3^{2}+4^{2}=5^{2}\] Therfore it forms a right triangle. 4,5,6 The sum f squares of shorter sides is equal to the square of the longest side. That is, \[4^{2}+5^{2}\neq6^{2}\] Therfore it dus nt form a right triangle.
