I am kinda confused about this question, because I keep messing up, so I kinda need help:

**Find all values of such that \(t-1\) , \(t+1\)and 4 could be the lengths of the sides of a right triangle.**

**Thanks!!!**

#1**+2 **

t+1 is obviously larger than t-1

assuming t+1 hypotenuse

(t+1)^2 = (t-1)^2 + 4^2

expand and solve for t

Now t+1 might be less than 4

then

4^2 = (t+1)^2 + (t-1)^2 expand and solve for more values of 't'

Remenber to check the values ot t+1 and t-1 to make sure they 'fit' the assumptions
