**In this post, we will discuss Properties of Right Angled Triangle to solve geometric questions asked in SSC Exams.**

In our previous posts, we have discussed different types of triangles, properties of triangles and different centres of a triangle - Centroid, Circumcentre, Orthocentre and Incentre. Brush up on the basics before we begin.

###
**What is a Right-Angled Triangle **

A right angled triangle is a triangle which contains one 90° angle.In any triangle, the side opposite to the larger angle is the largest side of a triangle.

In right-triangled ABC,

**AB is the side**

**BC is the base**

**AC is the hypotenuse**

###
**Pythagoras Theorem **

Pythagoras Theorem states that the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite to the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

In right-angled triangle ABC,

**Properties of right angled triangle when a perpendicular is drawn on the hypotenuse.**

Triangle ADB is similar to the Triangle BDC. Hence on the basis of similarity, corresponding angles are equal.

**BD**

^{2}= AD x DC**AB**

^{2}= AC x AD**BC**

^{2}= AC x DC

Another property of right angled triangle is
