Let "a", "b" and "с"  be sides of the triangle ("с" is the longest side). The triangle will be: right if       a² + b² = c² аcute if     a² + b² > c²     obtuse if   a² + b² < c²     We have a=2, b=√11 and c=√15 2² + (√11)² = 4 + 11 = 15 and (√15)² = 15 15 = 15   ⇒  right triangle. Hope this helps.
