Question: Can the numbers 24, 32, 40 be the lengths of the three sides of a right triangle? Please explain why or why not?

My answer: Yes, the numbers 24, 32, 40 can be the lengths of a three-sided right triangle because of the Pythagorean theorem (a^2 + b^2 = c^2). Which means 25 squared = 625, 25^2 + 32^2 = 40^2, 625 + 1024 = 1600, and that makes a right angle.

Please tell me if this is a good answer.

  1. It is not a good answer.

    Your addition is faulty.

    625 + 1024 = ????

  9. this is roses answer but correct
    Yes, the numbers 24, 32, 40 can be the lengths of a three-sided right triangle because of the Pythagorean theorem (a^2 + b^2 = c^2). Which means 24 squared = 576, 25^2 + 32^2 = 40^2, 576 + 1024 = 1600, and that makes a right angle.
    so rose was right but she made some mistakes
