Question

If in a right triangle, the hypotenuse is 20 m and the difference between the lengths of other sides is 4 m. Then, the sides are 14 and 18.


  1. False

  2. True


Solution

The correct option is A

False


Let other two sides of right triangle be x and x + 4, then
x2+(x+4)2=202
2x2+8x+16=400
2x2+8x384=0
x2+4x192=0
Solving this equation, we get
x = 12 or – 16
Let's consider only positive value for length
The two sides are 12 m and 12 + 4 or 16 m.
