# Which of the following sets of triangles could be the lengths of the sides of a right-angled triangle:

(a) 3 cm, 4 cm, 6 cm

(b) 9 cm, 16 cm, 26 cm

(c) 1.5 cm, 3.6 cm, 3.9 cm

(d) 7 cm, 24 cm, 26 cm

**Solution:**

Using the Pythagorean Theorem

Hypotenuse² = Base² + Perpendicular²

(a) 6² = 3² + 4²

36 = 9 + 16

36 ≠ 25

(b) 26² = 16² + 9²

676 = 256 + 81

676 ≠ 337

(c) 3.9² = 1.5² + 3.6²

15.21 = 2.25 + 12.96

15.21 = 15.21

(d) 26² = 7² + 24²

676 = 49 + 576

676 ≠ 625

Therefore, 1.5 cm, 3.6 cm, 3.9 cm could be the lengths of the sides of a right-angled triangle.
