a hypothenuse is a side of the triangle that is not a leg the hypothenuse formula is c2 = a2 + b2, where c is the lengt of the hypothenuse. The hypothenuse is the longest side of a triangle. That's why a triangle with 60 degree angles does not have a hypotenuse, onlye three sides of an equivalent length.

Use the distance formula to calculate the distances between the three vertices. If they are all different, the triangle is scalene, if only two are the same, the triangle is isosceles, and if they are all the same, the triangle is equilateral.

Its hypotenuse

Pythagoras invented the distance formula

== I'm pretty sure the formula for distance is: D== rt (Distance= rate x time) == The formula for distance is: speed x time.

right triangle

That is correct

Yes and in effect you are using Pythagoras' theorem for a right angle triangle.

c2=a2 + b2 where c2 is the hypotenuse squared and "a" and "b" are each side of the triangle Remember the hypotenuse is the length of the triangle opposite the right angle. Rearrange the formula so the hypothenuse c = the square root of a2 + b2

I'm pretty sure it's a right triangle I'm not sure though. Ask your teacher
