With 2 sides of length 9, you'd have a right triangle if the third side measured approx. 12.7 The third side is longer than 12.7, but it is less than 9 + 9 = 18. That means you still have a triangle, but not a right triangle. Since two sides are congruent, it is an isosceles triangle.

One rule of triangles is that any side must always be shorter than the sum of the lengths of the other 2 sides. Since 2 sides are 9 and 9, to have a triangle, the third side must be less than 18. Since 17 is less than 18, you do have a triangle.
