Is a triangle with sides of 3,4,6 a right triangle?
It is not a right triangle.
To check if the sides are a right triangle, check if the sum of the squares of the two smaller sides equals the length of the square of the longest side.
In other words, check if it works with the Pythagorean theorem:

A triangle with sides of
We are given three sides of a triangle
Pythagoras Theorem states that in a right angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
To determine whether the three given sides form a right triangle, we use the Pythagoras Theorem to verify.
Draw a triangle, say
Note that the longest side (BC) has a magnitude of
Hence, this must be the Hypotenuse, if triangle ABC is a right-triangle.
Does the angle
Verify that using the relationship between the hypotenuse and the other two legs of the triangle.
