    It is a right triangle. I'm not sure how else the question is asked to be completed.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You can use the Pythagorean theorem to check if a triangle is a right triangle.

    8.5 is the biggest number so if it is a right triangle it would be the hypotenuse. So that is how we'll set it up.

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    4^2 + 7.5^2 = 8.5^2

    16 + 56.25 = 72.5

    72.25 = 72.25

    Since it works out then the triangle is a right triangle.
