The Miscellaneous Right Triangles ClipArt gallery includes 26 illustrations including the special triangles known as the 30-60-90 and the 45-45-90. There are also images of leaning ladders, buildings, and trees that can be used with application problems involving right triangle trigonometry and use of the Pythagorean theorem.

"In any right triangle, the square described on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares described on the other two sides. If A B C, is a right triangle, right angled at B, then the square described on the hypotenuse AC is equal to the sum of the suares described on the sides A B and B C." — Hallock, 1905
