Explanation

Given:

Each of the diagonal of the quadrilateral is 27cm long.

Two adjacent sides measures 17cm and 21cm.

Approach:

For a right angle triangle, the Pythagorean Theorem is,

a2+b2=c2 ……(1)

Here, a is the perpendicular of the triangle, b is the base of the triangle and c is the hypotenuse.

A quadrilateral is a rectangle if all the angles of the quadrilateral are right angles and when the angle is right angle then triangle formed with diagonal will satisfy the Pythagorean Theorem
