In Exercises 34 to 36, provide paragraph proofs. Given: Right △ A B C Prove: h = a b c To determine

To prove:

h=abc in a right ΔABC.

Explanation

1) Formula:

Area of the right triangle A=ab unit2.

Where, a and b are the two legs of the right triangle.

Area of the triangle A=bh unit2.

Where, b is the base of the triangle, and h is the height of the triangle.

2) Calculation:

Given,

By the figure,

a and b are the two legs and hypotenuse c of the triangle ΔABC

Area of the right triangle ABC=12ab unit2

(i.e.) AABC=12ab unit2(1)

When, AB¯ is the base of the triangle ΔABC

h is the height of the triangle and AB¯=c is base (b) of the triangle
