Answer

This is a right triangle

Work Step by Step

You have to use the Pythagorean theorem to determine if this is a right triangle. A=1.6, B=3, C=3.4: $a^{2}$+$b^{2}$=$c^{2}$ $1.6^{2}$+$3^{2}$=$3.4^{2}$ -simplify the exponents- 2.56+9=11.56-simplify like terms- 11.56=11.56 They are equal so this is a right triangle.
