# Using the Pythagorean Theorem, is a triangle with sides measuring the following a right triangle: #12, 9, 15#?

Yes

In a right angled triangle, the square on the hypotenuse (longest side - side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the square on the other 2 sides.

Yes, a triangle with sides measuring 12, 9, and 15 is a right triangle because it satisfies the Pythagorean Theorem, which states that in a right triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides. In this case:

12^2 + 9^2 = 144 + 81 = 225 15^2 = 225

Since 12^2 + 9^2 equals 15^2, the triangle satisfies the Pythagorean Theorem and is therefore a right triangle.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- An isosceles triangle has sides A, B, and C, such that sides A and B have the same length. Side C has a length of #12 # and the triangle has an area of #36 #. What are the lengths of sides A and B?
- How does the length of the hypotenuse relate to the length of the legs?
- What is the Hypotenuse-Angle Congruence Theorem?
- Why is the cosine of an obtuse angle negative?
- A right triangle has sides A, B, and C. Side A is the hypotenuse and side B is also a side of a rectangle. Sides A, C, and the side of the rectangle adjacent to side B have lengths of #17 #, #2 #, and #9 #, respectively. What is the rectangle's area?
