When you are given three measurements of a triangle, How can you tell if it is a right triangle or not?

Apr 20th, 2015

If you have three side length of a triangle, say, a, b, and c (a <= b <= c), then the triangle is right if and only if 

c2 = a2 + b2.  If c2 < a2 + b2, then the triangle is acute and, finally, the triangle is obtuse if c2 > a2 + b
