A right triangle has a right angle (90º) and two acute angles.
The hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle and is the largest side of the triangle.
The legs or catheti (singular: cathetus) are the sides opposite the acute angles and are the shorter sides of the triangle.
In a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse equals the sum of the squares of the legs.
Determine whether the following triangle is a right triangle:
