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
(8 times 8) + (6 times 6)= ( 11 times 11)
No, this is not a perfect right triangle because a^2 + b^2 is not equal to c^2.
