    a leg of a right triangle can never be greater then the hypotenuse

    this formula will tell you if it’s a valid right triangle
     {?}^{2} + {?}^{2} = {?}^{2}
    the first two question marks are the legs of the triangle while the one after the = is the hypotenuse.

    THE STEPS:
     {3}^{2} + { \sqrt{7}^{2} } = {4}^{2}
    9 + {2.65}^{2} = 16
     {2.65}^{2} = 7
    9 + 7 = 16
    ANSWER:  \sqrt{7}
