If it has no right angles, it is not a right triangle and therefore you cannot name a hypotenuse of that triangle. Which implies you cannot find that side's measure.

A right triangle.

We know that a right triangle is a triangle having a right angle, where the side opposite the right angle is the hypotenuse, and the perpendicular sides are the legs of the right triangle. The Pythagorean theorem gives the relationship between the lengths of the sides of a right triangles. In the case where you know only the measure lengths of the sides of a triangle, you need to test these measures. If one of the sides of the triangle has a square measure equal to the sum of the square measures of two other sides, then this side is called the hypotenuse and opposite to this side is a 90 degree angle, which is a right angle. So, you can say that this triangle is a right triangle. Pythagorean triple are very helpful to determine a right triangle, such as: (3, 4, 5), (5,12,13), (8, 15, 17), (7, 24, 25), and (20, 21, 29).

It could be a right triangle if it has a right angle (90 degrees). If it does not have a right angle, then it is an acute triangle.
