Right triangle ( triangle in which one angle is 90 degrees)

A right triangle.

No. The Pythagorean theorem applies only to right triangles...those containing a right angle (90 degrees).

Type your answer here... In a right triangle, the hypotenuse equals the sum of the squares of the legs.

By using trigonometry or Pythagoras' theorem depending on what type of triangle it is.

It is a right angle triangle because the given dimensions comply with Pythagoras' theorem.

Use Pythagoras' theorem or trigonometry depending on what type of triangle it is. ` Only if it is a right triangle you will be able to use Pythagoras' theorem. This formula states that a^2 + b^2 = c^2 Where a and b are your two of the sides and c is the hypotenuse of the triangle. f you know the hypotenuse but not one of the other sides you can manipulate this formula.

You can draw it on paper. Not sure what you mean with "working model": this is not about a physical device. Pythagoras' Theorem is about one specific type of calculatoin.

any right triangle

The Pythagorean Theorem is not a triangle. It's a statement that describes a relationship among the lengths of the sides in any right triangle.

A right triangle.

It is possible depending on what type of triangle it is. For instance if it was an equilateral triangle then all sides would be equal and then by means of Pythagoras' theorem you could work out the height of the triangle and using the formula: 1/2*base*height = area

An equilateral triangle.

Simply because the Pythagorean Theorem is not true for any triangle that doesn't have a right angle in it. If a triangle has a right angle in it, then it satisfies the Theorem. If it hasn't, then it doesn't. And if it satisfies the Theorem, then it has a right angle in it, and if it doesn't, then it hasn't.
