Find the length of the hypotenuse of a triangle whose other two sides are 24cm and 7cm.

###### Advertisements

#### Solution

The two sides (excluding hypotenuse) of a right-angled triangle are given as 24cm and 7cm

(hypotenuse)^{2} = (24cm)^{2} + (7cm)^{2}

(hypotenuse)^{2} = 576cm^{2} + 49cm^{2}

(hypotenuse)^{2} = 625cm^{2}

(hypotenuse)^{2} = (25cm)^{2}

Thus, the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle is 25cm.

Activity: From given figure, In ∆ABC, ∠ABC = 90°, ∠ACB = 30°

∴ ∠BAC = `square`

∴ ∆ABC is 30° – 60° – 90° triangle

∴ In ∆ABC by property of 30° – 60° – 90° triangle.

∴ AB = `1/2` AC and `square` = `sqrt(3)/2` AC

∴ `square` = `1/2 xx 12` and BC = `sqrt(3)/2 xx 12`

∴ `square` = 6 and BC = `6sqrt(3)`
