Triangle with a Right angle i.e. 90° has an amazing property. Do you want to know what property is that? Go on, read our notes to see the amazing property of a right angled triangle.
Pythagoras Theorem deals only with problems involving any Triangle having one of its Angles with 900. This kind of a Triangle is called Right angled triangle.
When triangle is a right angled triangle, squares can be made on each of the three sides. See illustration below:
The Area of the biggest square is exact the same as the sum of the other two squares put together. This is what is called Pythagoras theorem and it is written as:
‘c’ is the Longest side of the Triangle, is called Hypogenous and is the one that forms the biggest square. a and b are the two smaller sides.
