help please
Determine if triangle RST with coordinates R (3, 4), S (5, 5), and T (6, 1) is a right triangle. Use evidence to support your claim. If it is not a right triangle, what changes can be made to make it a right triangle? Be specific.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For a right triangle we know that two sides are perpendicular. Here is the relation which we can use : If two sides are perpendicular, then their slopes multiply to \(1\).
