Question

A side of an isosceles right angled triangle is x. Find its hypotenuse. 

Solution

It is given that, a side of an isosceles right angled triangle is x.
Then, the other side of the triangle is also x.
According to Pythagoras theorem.

\[\left( \text{Hypotenuse} \right)^2 = x^2 + x ^2 \]

                          \[ = 2 x^2 \]

\[ \therefore \text{Hypotenuse} = \sqrt{2}x\]

Hence, its hypotenuse is\[\sqrt{2}x\]

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
