can someone help me with this math question. I am asked to show my work but I don't know how to do so. The question is: The following set of numbers a perfect triple? 8, 10, 12 yes or now and how so? Thanks for your help.

do you mean a perfect Pythagorean triple?

Hi Sylvia,
Yes, that is what was meant. Thanks for getting clarification. I look forward to your help. Thanks again. 
determine whether or not
8^2 + 10^2 = 12^2
does 64 + 100 = 144....no so it is not a pyth triple
