Hint: Use distance formula for finding the length of sides and then apply the condition for triangle.

The given points in the question are $\left( {3,2} \right),\left( { - 2, - 3} \right)$and$\left( {2,3} \right)$.
Let $\left( {3,2} \right)$is denoted as point$A$, $\left( { - 2, - 3} \right)$as point $B$and $\left( {2,3} \right)$as point $C$.
Now, we can use the distance formula for finding out the distance between two points $\left( {{x_1},{y_1}} \right)$and $\left( {{x_2},{y_2}} \right)$, it is:
$\Rightarrow D = \sqrt {{{\left( {{x_2} - {x_1}} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {{y_2} - {y_1}} \right)}^2}}$
Applying this formula, we can find out the distance between points. We’ll get:
$\Rightarrow AB = \sqrt {{{\left( {3 + 2} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {2 + 3} \right)}^2}} = \sqrt {50} = 5\sqrt 2 , \\ \Rightarrow BC = \sqrt {{{\left( { - 2 - 2} \right)}^2} + {{\left( { - 3 - 3} \right)}^2}} = \sqrt {52} = 2\sqrt {13} , \\ \Rightarrow AC = \sqrt {{{\left( {3 - 2} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {2 - 3} \right)}^2}} = \sqrt 2 , \\$
From this, we can see that:
$\Rightarrow A{B^2} = {\left( {5\sqrt 2 } \right)^2} = 50, \\ \Rightarrow B{C^2} = {\left( {2\sqrt {13} } \right)^2} = 52, \\ \Rightarrow A{C^2} = {\left( {\sqrt 2 } \right)^2} = 2. \\ \Rightarrow B{C^2} = A{B^2} + A{C^2} \\$
The sides are satisfying Pythagoras theorem. $AB$ is perpendicular to $AC$.
Therefore, the above points are forming a triangle and it is a right angled triangle.

Note: If one of the angles of a triangle is ${90^ \circ }$,then the triangle is called a right angled triangle.
If one of the angles of a triangle is greater than ${90^ \circ }$,then the triangle is called an obtuse angled triangle. And if all the angles of a triangle are less than ${90^ \circ }$,then the triangle is called acute angled triangle.
