Which statement about a right triangle is NOT true?
A.) The hypotenuse is the longest side of the triangle.
B.) The square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two lengths.
C.) The sum of the length of the two legs is equal to the length of the hypotenuse.
D.) The hypotenuse is always opposite the largest angle of the triangle.

I think it is B.
