How can I prove that a right triangle whose sides are n^2+1 , n^2-1, and 2n is indeed a right triangle? The hint is to use the pythagorean theorem which is a^2 + b^2 = C^2 . I dont know what to do? i tried squaring the 3 terms but I cant get the first 2 to equal the last term (term c which is probably 2n^2) Please help me someone I dont get this at all(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
