### Math Scavenger Hunt Station 2

How do you know that the following are Right Triangles?  Explain your thinking in words and pictures.  Show your work on a white piece of paper and colour it to explain your thinking

a2+b2=c2
20cm2 + 40cm2= 50cm2
(20x20=400)+(40x40=1600)=(50x50=2500)
400cm2 + 1600cm2= 2000cm2
400cm2 + 1600cm2 doesn't equal 2500cm2
It is not a right triangle.

a2+b2=c2
2cm2 + 3cm2= 4cm2
(2x2=4) + (3x3=9)= (4x4=16)
4cm2 + 9cm2= 13cm2
4cm2 + 9cm2= 13cm2 not 16cm2 so it is not a right triangle

Station 2:

Question 8:
The triangle is not a right triangle because if you apply a squared plus b squared equals c squared, it says that c=44.72 which is not correct.

Question 9:
The areas of the squares are:

a=9cm
b=4cm
c=13cm

Stations 1 and 2 were also done by Emily.

Marysa873 said...

8.
a2+b2=c2
40cm2+20cm2=50cm2
60cm2 does not 50cm2

9.

a2+b2=c2
2 squared + 3 squared=4 squared
(2x2)+(3x3)=(4x4)
4+9=16
13 does not equal 16

Neither are perfect squares because when you apply them to a2+b2=c2 the answer is not correct.

Emily873 said...

a2+b2=c2(50cm2)
40cm2+20cm2=60cm2
50cm2 does not equal 60cm2 so it isn't a right triangle.

a2+b2=c2 (c=4cm 4cm2= 16cm2)
3cm2+2cm2=c2
(3cmx3cm)+(2cmx2cm)=c2
9cm2+4cm2=13cm2
16cm2 does not equal 13cm2 so it is not a right triangle.

These triangles are not right triangles because they do not follow the formula.

Christian2 8-73 said...

8. a2=b2=c2
20cm2=40cm2=60cm2
60 doesn't equal 50

9.a2+b2=c2
2cm2+3cm@=4cm2
(2x2)+(3x3)=(4x4)
13 doesn't equal 16

These triangles are not right triangles because when you apply the formula to these triangles the answer isn't right.

Question 8.
a2 + b2 = c2
40cm2+20cm2=50cm2
(40x40)+(20x20)=(50x50)
1600cm2+ 400cm2= 2500
2000 doesnt = to 2500

No Its not a right triangle because a2+b2 doesnt equal to the hypotenuse.

Question 9.
a2+b2=c2
3cm2+2cm2= 4cm2
(3x3)+(2x2)= (4x4)
9cm2+ 4cm2= 16cm2
13cm2 doesnt = to 16cm2

No its not a right tirangle because 9cm2 + 4cm2= 13cm2, the hypotenuse is 16 cm2.

#8
a²+b²=c²
40cm²+20cm²=50cm²
60cm²≠50cm²

#9
a²+b²=c²
3²+2²=4²
(3x3)+(2x2)=(4x4)
9cm²+4cm²=16cm²
13cm²≠16²

Both of these triangles do not follow the formula (a²+b²=c²) therefore, they are not right triangles.

Olivia816 said...

a2 + b2 = c2

Both of the triangles aren't a right triangle because they don't work with a²+b²=c².

Melanie 16 said...

Question 8:
a² + b² = c²
40 cm² + 20 cm² = 50 cm²
1600 cm² + 400 cm² = 2500 cm²
2000 cm² does not equal 2500 cm²

Question 9:
a² + b² = c²
2 cm² + 3 cm² = 4 cm²
4 cm² + 9 cm² = 16 cm²
13 cm² does not equal 16 cm²

Both are not right triangles because both sides of the equation do not equal each other.

Hazel873 said...

Question #8.

area= 2x2
area= 4cm²

Square b
area= SxS
area= 3x3
area= 9cm²

400 cm² + 1600 cm² = 2500 cm²
2000 cm² ≠ 2500 cm²

This is not a right triangle because 2000 cm² does not equal to 2500 cm².

#9
a² + b² = c²
2² + 3² = 4²
(2x2) + (3x3) = 4x4

Karen816 said...

Question 8:
a² + b² = c²
20cm² + 40cm² = 60cm²
60cm² ≠ 50cm²
The triangle is not a right triangle because the legs don't equal the hypotenuse.

Question 9:
The areas are of 2(a), 3(b), 4(c) are:
a=4cm²
b=9cm²
c=16cm²

a² + b²= c²
2² + 3²= c²
(2x2)+(3x3)= c²
4cm² + 9cm² = 13cm²
13cm² ≠ 16cm²
This triangle is not a right triangle because the legs(a and b) don't equal the hypotenuse(c).

It's not a right triangle because it doesn't equal.

Areas of the square:
a=9cm²
b=4cm²
c=16cm²

Breanna873 said...

a2+b2=c2(50cm2)
40cm2+20cm2=60cm2
50cm2 does not equal 60cm2 so it isn't a right triangle.

a2+b2=c2 (c=4cm 4cm2= 16cm2)
3cm2+2cm2=c2
(3cmx3cm)+(2cmx2cm)=c2
9cm2+4cm2=13cm2
16cm2 does not equal 13cm2 so it is not a right triangle.

These triangles are not right triangles because they do not follow the formula.
