    Question

# Assertion: Points A(6, 4), B(-4, -6) and C(4, 6) are such that AB =√200, BC= √208, AC= √8, Since AB+BC>AC, points A, B and C from a triangle. Reason: If BC2=AB2+AC2, then ΔABC is a right triangle, right angled at A.

Solution

## The correct option is A If both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of assertion. Sum of the two sides is greater than third side ∴AB+BC>AC and AB+AC>BC ∵ ABC is a triangle Also BC2=AB2+AC2 (√208)2=(√200)2+√82208=200+8208=208 ∴ ABC is right angled triangle Assertion: True; Reason: True but is not the correct explanation of assertion  Suggest Corrections  1      Similar questions  Related Videos   Distance Formula
