7.2:
Theorem 7.2: Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem: If the square of the length of the
longest side of a triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two
sides, then the triangle is a right triangle.

Theorem 7.3: If the square of the length of the longest side of a triangle is less than the sum
of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides, then the triangle is an acute triangle.
Theorem 7.4: If the square of the length of the longest side of a triangle is greater than the
sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides, then the triangle is an obtuse
triangle.

Theorem 7.6: Geometric Mean (Altitude) Theorem: In a right triangle, the altitude from the
right angle to the hypotenuse divides the hypotenuse into two segments.
The length of the altitude is the geometric mean of the lengths of the two segments.
Theorem 7.7: Geometric Mean (Leg) Theorem: In a right triangle, the altitude from the right
angle to the hypotenuse divides the hypotenuse into two segments.
The length of each leg of the right triangle is the geometric mean of the lengths of the
hypotenuse and the segment of the hypotenuse that is adjacent to the leg.
