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.

ok thanks but how do you know if "30"

is a right triangle? I thought 90 was a right triangle?

Ahh -- 30 is the length of the hypotenuse (longest side).
