# How do you use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine if the following three numbers could represent the measures of the sides of a right triangle: 3, 4, 5?

${3}^{2} + {4}^{2} = {5}^{2}$
The Pythagorean Theorem says that given 3 numbers, $a , b , \mathmr{and} c$ where $C$ is the largest of the 3 numbers
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} {c}^{2} = {a}^{2} + {b}^{2}$
