are you given a figure to draw? There isn't really any problem to solve...

  • anonymous
Why would you need a figure to draw? Use Pythag theorem.

Use Pythagorean's theorem. The 1st is obviously.

The question poses: Which of the below are sides of a right triangle. You have 3 sides. What is confusing you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
C isn't a right triangle so it's only A.

Maybe i'm not understanding this question :\ How can you just pick an answer without proving that a triangle with measurements of 3,4,5 are a right triangle?...
anonymous
  • anonymous
It says so in the question

either \(a^2+b^2=c^2\) in which case the answer is "yes" or \(a^2+b^2\neq c^2\) in which case the answer is "no"
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
I KNOW the answer is A. But if you were to prove is a right triangle,would you know how to do that?

\[3^{2}+4^{2} = 9 + 16 = 25 = 5^{2}\]

so only \(2,4,5\) works, the rest do not

@satellite73 could you elaborate please?
anonymous

You're welcome!
anonymous
  • anonymous
the largest value always has to be C in the following equation (Pythagorean's) Thm)\[A^{2}+B^{2}=C^{2}\]
Jhannybean
  • Jhannybean
No what i'm confused about is what @satellite73 meant when he stated "only 2,4,5 work but the rest do not"
