Determine if triangle RST with coordinates R (3, 4), S (5, 5), and T (6, 1) is a right triangle. Use evidence to support your claim. If it is not a right triangle, what changes can be made to make it a right triangle? Be specific.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0find the length of each side of the triangle, either by graphing or using the distance formula then determine whether the triangle satisfies the Pythagorean theorem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Looking at the figure, do any of the angles look close to 90 degrees? maybe <SRT (the angle at point R) ... though it does not look quite right. I would find the slope from R to S (change in y divided by change in x) and the slope from R to T if the slopes are "negative reciprocals", then you have a right angle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the slope between points R and S ?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, and the slope from R to T is 1 so the lines do not form a right angle (if we got 2 slope from R to T it would be a right angle)

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find a point that forms a right triangle, we could adjust point S so the slope from R to S is +1 (the "negative reciprocal" of 1 is  1/(1) = 1/1 = 1 )

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example, if we move S from (5,5) to (4,5) the slope from R to S' will be 1 (if you work it out)

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which way is easier?

phi
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's the same work either way. But they ask the question If it is not a right triangle, what changes can be made to make it a right triangle? so you should pick one way and show it makes a right angle (by showing the slopes are negative reciprocals)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh i stuck on this part

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are done with the first part. The slope from R to S is 1/2 the slope from R to T is 1 1/2 is not the negative reciprocal, so the lines do not form a 90 degree angle.
