Hypotenuse Calculator

The hypotenuse is the opposite arm of the right angle.  In a right-angled triangle, the area of the square drawn on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the areas of the two squares drawn on the other two sides. Using the below calculator, you can easily find out the hypotenuse length of any right angle. You need to enter the length of two arms at the right angle which is also known as base and height.

If two adjacent angles are on the same line and then each of the related adjacent angles is a right angle. The two sides of a right angle are mutually perpendicular. In the below figure two angles BAC and DAC are produced at point A of BD by the ray AC. C is the vertex Of these two angles. AC is the common side Of the angles BAC and DAC. The angles lie on the opposite sides Of the common side AC. If BAC and DAC are equal then each of the two angles is the right angle. The line segments AC and BD are mutually perpendicular.

What is the Right triangle?

A triangle with one of the angles right is a right-angled triangle. In the figure, the ZDFE is a right angle; each of the two other angles DEF and EDF are acute. The triangle DEF is a right-angled triangle.

The naming of sides of a right-angled triangle

 We know that the sides of the right angles triangle are known as hypotenuse, base, and height. This is successful for the horizontal position of the triangle. Again, the naming is based on the position of one of the two acute angles of the right-angled triangle. 

For example : 
1. Hypotenuse: the side Of a right angle«l triangle, which is the side Of the right angle. 
2. Opposite side: Which is the direct opp«site side Of a given angle 
3. Adjacent side: which is a line segment constituting the given angle.
