1. A long ladder reached a window high from the ground on placing it against a wall at a distance . Find the distance of the foot of the ladder from the wall.

Answer:

Given,

Consider,

In triangle ABC, applying Pythagoras theorem]

[]

So, the distance of the foot of the ladder from the wall is .

2. Which of the following can be the sides of a right triangle?

(i)

(ii)

(iii)

In the case of right-angled triangles, identify the right angles.

Answer:

Consider us consider, the larger side be the hypotenuse and also using Pythagoras theorem,

(i) In

L. H. S.

R. H. S.

L. H. S = R. H. S

So, the given sides are of the right angled triangle.

Right angle lies on the opposite to the greater side , i.e.. , at .

(ii)

In the given triangle,

L. H. S.

R. H. S.

Since, .

So, the given sides are not of the right angled triangle.

(iii)

In

L. H. S.

R. H. S.

Since, L. H. S. = R. H. S.

So, the given sides are of the right angled triangle.

Right angle lies on the opposite to the greater side i.e.. , at .
