Work Step by Step

The sides of a right triangle will satisfy the equation $a^2+b^2=c^2$. a and b are the lengths of the legs. c is the length of the hypotenuse and is the longest side. $1^2+(\frac{4}{3})^2\overset?=(\frac{5}{3})^2$ $1+\frac{16}{9}\overset?=\frac{25}{9}$ $\frac{9}{9}+\frac{16}{9}\overset?=\frac{25}{9}$ $\frac{25}{9}=\frac{25}{9}\checkmark$
