By Pythagoras, if the sum of squares of two sides is equal to the square of the largest side then the triangle is said to be right-angled

Here given sides of the triangle are 7, 24 and 25

Largest side = 25

25^{2} = 625 Sum of squares of remaining two sides 7^{2} + 24^{2} = 49 + 576 = 625

∴ 72 + 242 = 252 Therefore triangle having sides 7,24 and 25 is a right-angled triangle
