it's just a scaledup 345 right triangle.
You can check to see whether 45^2 + 60^2 = 75^2
it does

Ms. Sue
45^2 + 60^2 = 75^2 ??
2025 + 3600 = 5625

I know that a 3, 4 , 5 triangle is a right triangle
but I can prove it easily anyway because
9 + 16 = 25 or in other words a^2+b^2=c^2
now multiply each side by 15 and get
45, 60 , 75 :)
