Pythagorean Relationship - The relationship between the lengths of the 2 sides of a right triangle

3.

the question is if the triangle is a right triangle

its legs are 6cm and 8 cm the legs are commonly the 2 smaller number and the largest number in the triangle is the hypotenuse

so to find if its a right triangle is:

8cm= a

6cm= b

11cm= c

c2 = a2 + b2

c2 = 82 + 62

c2 = (8x8)+ (6x6)

c2 = 64cm2 +36 cm 2

c2 = 100

_ _

/c2 = /100 cm2

= 10 cm 2

c2 = 10 x 10

the answer is = NO its not a perfect square 10 = 11
