Question

Tick the correct answer and justify: In ΔABC, AB = `6sqrt3` cm, AC = 12 cm and BC = 6 cm.

The angle B is:

  • 120°

  • 60°

  • 90°

  • 45°

Solution

Given that, AB = `6sqrt3` cm, AC = 12 cm, and BC = 6 cm

It can be observed that

AB2 = 108

AC2 = 144

And, BC2 = 36

AB2 +BC2 = AC2

The given triangle, ΔABC, is satisfying Pythagoras theorem.

Therefore, the triangle is a right triangle, right-angled at B.

∴ ∠B = 90°

Hence, the correct answer is 90°.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
