Textbook Problem

Given its lengths of sides, is △ R S T a right triangle?a) a = 15 , b = 8 ,   a n d   c = 17 b) a = 11 , b = 8 ,   a n d   c = 15 To determine

a)

To find:

RST is a right triangle or not.

Explanation

Given, In RST,

a=15,b=8 are the legs and c=17 is the hypotenuse.

By Converse of Pythagorean Theorem,

If a,b,c are the length of the three sides of a triangle, with c the length of the longest side, and if c2=a2+b2, then the triangle is a right triangle with the right angle opposite the side of the length c

To determine

b)

To find:

RST is a right triangle or not.
