*The relationship between the**lengths of the side of the right triangle. The sum of the areas of the squares attached to the legs of a right triangle equals** the area of a square attached to the hypoten**use.*

the pythagorean relationship can be used to show if a triangle is a right triangle.

Left side:

6 squared+8 square= 10 squared

(6x6)+(8x8)=(10x10)

36+64=100

square root of "C" squared= square root of 100cm squared is 10

C=10cm

the sum of the areas of the two smaller squares is 100cm squared.

the triangle is a right triangle.
