A right angle is indicated at the intersection of the vertical and horizontal sides. A second triangle has a vertical side of length y plus 8, a longer horizontal side, and a third side that falls from left to right with a length of 4 y. A right angle is indicated at the intersection of the vertical and horizontal sides. xxx plus 4x+44 y4yy plus 8y+8
