Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a pythagorean triple will satisfy the equation a^2 + b^2 = c^2 for each answer choice, plug in the values for a, b, and c, and if the equation is satisfied, then it is a pythagorean triple

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"satisfied" means the equation is true (both sides of the equal sign are equal)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for example, we can look at answer choice A and let a = 28, b = 45, and c = 53. if a^2 + b^2 = c^2 then the equation is satisfied

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for answer choice A, a = 28 b = 45 c = 53 a^2 + b^2 = c^2 28^2 + 45^2 = 53^2 784 + 2025 = 2809 2809 = 2809 since both sides of the equal sign are equal, the equation is satisfied, and this is a Pythagorean triple (meaning, A is not the answer) keep going until you find the answer choice that ISN'T satisfied

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.17059 + 169 = 7225 7225 = 7225 the equation is satisfied, so C is not our answer... please keep going with the other choices...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0D. 11, 61, 62 11 x11 = 121 61 x 61 = 3721 3844 = 63x63

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, D is our answer because 121 + 3721 is NOT equal to 3844
