Since the measure of the longest side is 39, 39 must be c , and a or b are 15 and 36. a 2 1 b 2 5 ¬ c 2 15 2 1 36 2 0 ¬ 39 2 225 1 1296 0 ¬ 1521 1521 5 ¬ 1521 These segments form the sides of a right triangle since they satisfy the Pythagorean Theorem. The measures are whole numbers and form a Pythagorean triple. 9. Since the measure of the longest side is 21, 21 must be c , and a or b are Ï 40 w and 20. a 2 1 b 2 5 ¬ c 2 1 Ï 40 w 2 2 1 20 2 0 ¬ 21 2 40 1 400 0 ¬ 441 440 Þ ¬ 441 Since 400 Þ 441, segments with these measures cannot form a right triangle. Therefore, they do
