### Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem

• If c2 > a2 + b2, the triangle is obtuse.

• If c2 = a2 + b2, the triangle is right.

• If c2 < a2 + b2, the triangle is acute.

• Remember a + b > c, or it is not a triangle.

Determine whether each of the following is a triangle. If so, tell whether it is acute, right or obtuse.

• 7, 8, 9

• 5, 12, 13

• 8, 11, 19

• 8, 15, 22

Homework so, tell whether it is acute, right or obtuse.
