The hypotenuse of a right angled triangle of sides 12 cm and 16 cm is __________

Options

  • 28 cm

  • 20 cm

  • 24 cm

  • 21 cm

Solution

20 cm

Explanation;

Hint:

Side take a = 12 cm

b = 16 cm

The hypotenuse c2 = a2 + b2

= 122 + 162

= 144 + 256

c2 = 400

⇒ c = 20 cm

  Is there an error in this question or solution?

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)`
