Thanks for your replies. It seems I didn't get the memo on the whole 3:4:5 5:12:13 triangle subject. Does it matter which sides have the 3 the 4 or the 5 or as long as you see 2 of the the three and a ninety degree angle can you assume it is a 3:4:5 triangle?

Thanks,

Jim

Yes it matters which side have the 3 the 4 or the 5 or as long as you see 2 of the the three and a ninety degree angle can you assume it is a 3:4:5 triangle?the if two shorter side have lenghts 3 and 4 the other ll be 5

but if you have one short leg 3 and other short leg 5 the third leg(the longest one)won't be 4))
