Solution

Right-angled triangle 

Explanation:

In a triangle, if the square of one side is equal to the sum of the squares of the remaining two sides, then the triangle is a right-angled triangle. Hence, the correct option is the Right angled triangle.

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)`
