Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I say a or b cause the bottom is the smallestr and the 2 sides are the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1try the first one the longest side = 13 13^2 = 169 12^2 = 144 5^2 = 25 what do you infer from these results?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what conclusion do you come to? are these the 3 sides of a right angled triangle or not ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, I'm guessing it is.... I mean I kind of see what you did, and I can tell that the 3 lengths equaled to the right angle... I guess..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well 13^2 = 12^2 + 5^2  which can only mean that the triangle is right angled  according to the Pythagoras theorem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the square on the hypotenuse ( largest side) = sum of the squares on the other 2 sides  is only true for right angled triangles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in symbols that is c^2 = a^2 + b^2 where c is the hypotenuse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you might like to check out the other 3  theres at least one which is a right angled triangle
