1Unit 2 - Right Triangles and Trigonometry Chapter 8
2Triangle Inequality Theorem Need to know if a set of numbers can actually form a triangle before you classify it.Triangle Inequality Theorem: The sum of any two sides must be larger than the third.Example: 5, 6, 7Since > > > 6 it is a triangleExample: 1, 2, 3Since 1+2 = > > 2 it is not a triangle!
3Examples - Converse Can this form a triangle? Prove it: Show the work!
4Pythagorean Theorem and Its Converse 𝑎 2 + 𝑏 2 = 𝑐 2cabConverse of the Pythagorean Theoremc2 < a2 + b2 then Acutec2 = a2 + b2 then Rightc2 > a2 + b2 then Obtuse
6Pythagorean TripleA set of nonzero whole numbers a, b, and c that satisfy the equation 𝑎 2 + 𝑏 2 = 𝑐 2Common Triples3, 4, 55, 12, 138, 15, 177, 24, 25They can also be multiples of the common triples such as:6, 8, 109, 12, 1515, 20, 2514, 28, 50
