 Question 77689: find the distance between each pair of points. Points L(-2,3),M(3,-2), and N(6,1) form a triangle. Show whether triangle LMN is a right triangle.Answer by funmath(2925)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!find the distance between each pair of points. Points L(-2,3),M(3,-2), and N(6,1) form a triangle. Show whether triangle LMN is a right triangle. The formula for distance is Plotting the points will tell you that you need to find the distance of LM, MN, and LN. For LM (x1,y1)=(-2,3) and (x2,y2)=(3,-2) For MN (x1,y1)=(3,-2) and (x2,y2)=(6,1) For LN (x1,y1)=(-2,3) and (x2,y2)=(6,1) The pythagorean theorem says that the longest side squares is equal to the sum of the squares of the shortest sides. Yes, this is a right triangle! Happy Calculating!!!
