needs to be 3:4:5

**Jeff**, Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 9:59pmNo...Use c^2=a^2+b^2.

Use a= 24, b= 32 and c= 42 (the longest side).

Take a^2 + b^2 and see if it eqauls c^2

If it does, it is a right angle. If it does not, it is not a right triange.

In this case, it does not, so it is not a right triangle.

**Jeff**, Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 10:08pmKeep in mind it does not have to be in ratio of 3:4:5 to be a right triangle, it has to make the equation c^2=a^2+b^2 true. Another common right triangle is 5,12,13.
