**Identify, with reason, if the following is a Pythagorean triplet.**(10, 24, 27)

###### Advertisements

#### Solution

In the triplet (10, 24, 27),

10^{2} = 100, 24^{2} = 576, 27^{2} = 729 and 100 + 576 = 676 ≠ 729

The square of the largest number is not equal to the sum of the squares of the other two numbers.

∴ (10, 24, 27) is not a pythagorean triplet.
