Question

Which of the following are measurements of the sides of a right triangle? A. 3,4,5 B. 28,12 C. 17,14,6 D. All of the above

2 Answer

  • A right triangle has the 3/4/5 rule, which is pythagorean theorum.
    A^2 (A squared) + B^2 (B squared) = C^2 (C squared).
    You can test this.
    Let's try the first option, A.
    3^2 (A) + 4^2 (B) = 5^2 (C).
    3^2 = 9, B^2 = 16, C^2 = 25.
    9 + 16 = 25.
    A.) is the correct answer.
  • A. Only A follows the Pythagorean theorem  A^2 +B^2 =C^2
    C = hypotenuse
    A and B = other sides( doesn't matter which)
