    trianglessssssssssssssss

    look.............................................. ....................
    can a right angled triangle be possible with the following sides:-
    1)2.3,4.8,1.2
    2)3.2,1.2,3.2
    3)2.4,1.2,3.2

    Could you explain me how that could happen?

    Thanks!

    Test using Pythagoras' Theorem (the potential hypotenuse will be the longest side).

    The sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle must be greater than the
    third side.
