# In Δ A B C , m ∠ C = 90 ° Find : a) c if a = 8 and b = 6                                     _ b) b if a = 6 and c = 8 l                                     _

To determine

a)

To find:

The value of c.

Explanation

Procedure used:

In a right angle the sum of squares of two sides of a triangle is equal to the square of third longest side.

Given:

The given figure is,

Figure (1)

mC=90°, a=8

And,

b=6

Calculation:

Equate the sum of squares of two sides of the triangle is equal to the square of third longest side.

c2=a2+b2c=a

To determine

b)

To find:

The value of b.
