If the Sides of a Triangle Are 3 Cm, 4 Cm, and 6 Cm Long, Determine Whether the Triangle is a Right-angled Triangle. - Mathematics
If the sides of a triangle are 3 cm, 4 cm, and 6 cm long, determine whether the triangle is a right-angled triangle.
Sides of triangle
AB = 3 cm
BC = 4 cm
AC = 6 cm
∴ AB2 = 32 = 9
BC2 = 42 = 16
AC2 = 62 = 36
Since, AB2 + BC2 ≠ AC2
Then, by converse of Pythagoras theorem, triangle is not a right triangle.
