Which of the following sets could be the sides of a right triangle?
A. {2,3, sqrt of 13}
B. {2,2,4}
C. (1,2, sqrt of 3
wouldn't it be B because it has all even numbers?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If a triangle is a right triangle, and the lengths of its sides are a, b, and c, as shown in the figure below, then this equation is true: \(a^2 + b^2 = c^2\) dw:1436464135669:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When You do B: 2^2 + 2^2 = 8, and sqrt of 8 is not 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In a right triangle, the sides labeled a and b are always the sides that form the right angle. They are called legs. The side labeled c is the hypotenuse. It is opposite the right angle, and it is always the longest side in a right triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For each choice do this: 1. Square each of the shorter sides and add the squares. 2. Then square the longest side. 3. If the sum in step 1. does not equal the number in step 2., then the triangle is not a right triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Here is choice B.: 1. \(2^2 + 2^2 = 4 + 4 = 8\) 2. \(4^2 = 16\) 3. Since 8 is not equal to 16, choice B is not a right triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now do the same to choices A. and B. and see if they are right triangles.
