If the lengths of the 3 sides of a triangle satisfy the Pythagorean Equation (a²+b₂=c₂), then the triangle is a right triangle.
Isosceles Right Triangle Conjecture
In an isosceles right triangle, if the legs have length l, then the hypotenuse has length l√2.
30°-60°-90° Triangle Conjecture
In a 30°-60°-90° triangle, if the shorter leg has length a, then the longer leg has length a√3 & the hypotenuse has length 2a.
