Determine whether the triple of numbers can be the sides of a right triangle. Please explain.

6, 8, 10

Squareroot of 2, Squareroot of 3, Squareroot of 10

1. Reiny

If it is a right-angled triangle, then clearly the largest number would have to be the hypotenuse.
so test if 6^2 + 8^2 = 10^2 ?
Yes it is, so the 3 sides form a right-angled triangle.

is (√2)^2 + (√3)^2 = (√10)^2 ?
What do you think?
