Right triangle practice problems - page 77 of 82

A right triangle is a type of triangle that has one angle that measures exactly 90 degrees (a right angle). This angle is formed by the intersection of two of the triangle's sides, which are called the legs of the triangle. The other side of the triangle is called the hypotenuse, which is the side opposite the right angle, and is the longest side of the triangle. Right triangles are important in mathematics and are used in many areas of science and engineering, including trigonometry, physics, and construction. The Pythagorean theorem which states that in a right triangle, the sum of the squares of the legs (a,b) equals the square of the hypotenuse (c) is a fundamental result in geometry.
