Raeesa's Square Root Answers #-5,12,and 17


12) a,b,c.
c- yes because the side lengths of the rug is shorter than both side lengths of the room.

5) a,b,c.


This Pythagorean Relationship means that the sum of the areas of the two shortest sides of a right angle triangle (a and b) must always be equal to the area of the hypotenuse (c).

2) Solve for the missing side length.

12^2+ 5^2= c^2
144+ 25= c^2
root 169= root of c
13cm = c
the hypotenuse equals to 13cm.

3) Is this a right triangle? Prove it!!!

a^2 +b^2= c^2
8cm^2+6cm^2= 11cm^2
(8 times 8) + (6 times 6)= ( 11 times 11)
64+ 36=121
100 =/121

No, this is not a perfect right triangle because a^2 + b^2 is not equal to c^2.
