Please help I'm not sure how to solve this (it would be more helpful for a way to solve it rather than an answer)

Explanation:We will use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine if these lengths for a right triangle.This theorem states, for a right triangle:a2+b2=c2Where a and b are the base and height and c is the hypotenuse which is also the longest length.Substitute the values into this equation and see if both sides of the equation are equal. If they are the lengths form a right triangle. If they are not equal then they would not form a right triangle.362+772=8521296+5929=72257225=7225Because both sides of the equation are equal these lengths do form a right triangle. (not the actual answer)

for it to form a right triangle, it would satisfy the pythagorean theorem a^2 + b^2 = c^2....where a and b are the legs and c is the hypotenuse...keep in mind, the hypotenuse is the biggest side. so lets check it... a^2 + b^2 = c^2 57^2 + 76^2 = 95^2 3249 + 5776 = 9025 9025 = 9025 (correct) and since it satisfies the pythagorean theorem, it is a right triangle
