a. $\overline{RT}$ b. $\overline{RP}$ and $\overline{PT}$ c. $\overline{PT}$

Work Step by Step

a. The hypotenuse is the side of the triangle that is opposite the right angle. In $\triangle RST$, the hypotenuse is $\overline{RT}$. b. The segments of the hypotenuse are formed by the altitude of the right triangle, which is drawn from the right angle to the hypotenuse, forming a right angle. In this triangle, the segments of the hypotenuse are $\overline{RP}$ and $\overline{PT}$. c. The segment of the hypotenuse that is adjacent or next to $\overline{ST}$ is $\overline{PT}$.
