TRIANGLE - RIGHT ANGLE TRIANGLE

__RIGHT ANGLE TRIANGLE -__

**A right triangle is a type of triangle that has one angle measuring exactly 90 degrees, which is called a right angle. The side opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse, and the other two sides are known as the legs of the right triangle.**

__Key features of a right triangle:-__

__Right Angle:-__The most distinguishing feature is the presence of a 90-degree angle (right angle).__Hypotenuse:-__The side opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse. It is the longest side in a right triangle.__Legs:-__The other two sides, forming the right angle, are called the legs. These legs can have different lengths, and the side lengths are often denoted as "a" and "b."

**The Pythagorean Theorem is a fundamental concept related to right triangles. It states that in a right triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse (c) is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the legs (a and b):-**

** c² = a²+ b².**

**Here's an illustration of a right triangle:**

**In the above triangle ABC:-**

**Angle B is the right angle.****Side BC is the hypotenuse.****Sides AB and AC are the legs.**

**Right triangles have practical applications in various fields, including trigonometry, physics, engineering, and geometry. The Pythagorean Theorem is often used to solve problems involving right triangles and their side lengths.**
