Diana's Pythagorean Relationship

1. Answer in a short paragraph and with diagrams

For this first question, I'm going to be writing about Pythagorean Relationship and show a diagram. A Pythagorean relationship can be used to determine whether a triangle is a right triangle or not. The "a²" and "b²" are called the "legs". The "c" stands for " hypotenuse". To find the side length "a" you use a²= c² - b²; for b, you use b²= c² - a² and for "c" you use c²= a² + b². These are some facts that I know about Pythagorean Relationship.

2. Solve for the missing side length.

3. Is this a right triangle? Prove it!!!
