Right angled TriangleLet their be a triangle ABC with sides a opposite to A, b opposite to B and c opposite to C. It is right angled at C. If p is the perpendicular from C to AB. 'And fun?

Re: Right angled Trianglehi Agnishom Use Pythagoras together with ab = pc in eqn 1 The rest I leave to you. Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #3 20120930 20:43:26
Re: Right angled TrianglePutting ab = pc in eqn1: It was indeed a great one 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
