Short Answer

In Exercises 29 and 30, tell whether a triangle exists for the given description. If so, classify the triangle by its angles. If not, explain why not.

Two of the angles are complementary.

When two of the angles are complementary, then a triangle exits and it can be classified as Right-angled triangle.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given Information.

Two of the angles are complementary.

Step 2. Explanation.

Complementary angles are those whose sum of the angles is 90°. That is m1+m2=90°.

In a right-angled triangle, one angle measures 90° and the other two angles sum up to 90°.

Thus, when two of the angles are complementary then a triangle exits and it can be classified as right-angled triangle.
