How does one find the length of the hypotenuse in a right triangle?
Answer: We can find the length of the hypotenuse in a right triangle using pythagoras theorem
Any triangle with one angle equal to 90 degrees will satisfy Pythagoras theroem
The Pythagoras theorem formula states that in a right triangle ABC, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the square of the other two legs.
If AB, BC, and AC are the sides of the triangle, then: BC2 = AB2 + AC2
where, AB is the base, AC is the altitude or the height, and BC is the hypotenuse.
While if a, b, and c are the sides of the triangle, then c2 = a2 + b2
where, c = hypotenuse , a and b are base and the height of the triangle
