1. The set of side measurements that could be used to form a right triangle is √8, 5, and √17 option (C) is correct.

### What is a right-angle triangle?

It is a triangle in which one of the angles is 90 degrees and the other two are sharp angles. The sides of a right-angled triangle are known as the hypotenuse, perpendicular, and base.
It is given that:
The side length of the triangle is shown in the option:
As we know,
Pythagoras’ theorem is the square of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
Using Pythagoras‘ theorem:
From option(C):
√8, 5, and √17
(√8)² + (√17)² = 5²
8 + 17 = 25 (True)
Thus, the set of side measurements that could be used to form a right triangle is √8, 5, and √17 option (C) is correct.
