Say if these numbers make a right triangle and a Pythagorean triple: 2, 2 square root 2, and 2 square root 3.

I am confident that the answer for both parts of the question is no, because when 2 is squared and when 2 square root 2 is squared it is larger than 2 root 3 squared. I am confused because I do not know if 2 square root 2 is bigger than 2 square root 3. Please help!

  1. (2, 2 square root 2, and 2 square root 3)
    means
    (2, 2√2, 2√3)

    Square each number:
    (4, 2²×2, 2²×3)
    =(4,8,12)

    Do these numbers make a Pythagorean triplet?
