One method you can use to determine whether a triangle is a right triangle, given three side
lengths, is to apply the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem. Alternately, you can use
trigonometric ratios. Show that the triangle in the diagram is a right triangle by using
trigonometric ratios. (Be sure to show all work and/or reasoning.)
Hint: Use the Inverse Trigonometric Functions to solve for mB and mC and then use the Triangle Sum
Theorem
Is this correct?
I did A^2+B^2=C^2
33^2+56^2=65^2
1,089+3,136=4,225
4,225=4,225
So yes it is indeed a right triangle
