Question

# The side opposite to an obtuse angle of a triangle is

A
Smallest
B
Greatest
C
Half of the perimeter
D
None of these

Solution

## The correct option is B GreatestAngles between $${90}^{o}$$ and $${180}^{o}$$ are obtuse angles. Since, sum of angles in a triangle $$= {180}^{o}$$If one angle is obtuse, it will be the greatest angle as the other two angles will be acute angles such that the sum of the interior angles is $${180}^{o} .$$ The angles opposite to the sides will also have the same relation. Hence, the side opposite to the obtuse angle will be the greatest side of the triangle.Mathematics
