    can it fit into this situation? 16^2 + 30^2 = 35^2 if it does, then yes, it's a right triangle, but if not, it is not a right triangle

    False. Use the Pythagorean Theorem: In a right triangle, a² + b² = c² 16² + 30² = 35² 256 + 900 = 1225 1156 ≠ 1225 Thus the triangle is not a right triangle
