## Algebra 1

The hypotenuse is longer than the legs, so if the given measurements are the lengths of the sides of a right triangle then: $12^2+35^2\overset?=37^2\longrightarrow$ use a calculator $144+1225\overset?=1369\longrightarrow$ add $1369=1369\checkmark$ Since the given measurements satisfy the equation $a^2+b^2=c^2$, the lengths could represent the sides of a right triangle.
