Ms. Sue,
a^2 + b^2 = c^2
1.
18^2 + 24^2 = C^2
324 + 576 = c^2
900 = c^2
30 = c
The first one is a right triangle.
Do the same thing with the other two problems.

Delilah,
ok thanks but how do you know if "30"
is a right triangle? I thought 90 was a right triangle?

Ms. Sue,
Ahh  30 is the length of the hypotenuse (longest side).
