The question is from CAT Geometry - Triangles. It tests our understanding of triangle properties. CAT Geometry questions are heavily tested in CAT exam. Make sure you master Geometry problems. If you are given product of two sides of a triangle with integer sides, can you figure out the third side?
Question 9: △ has sides a2, b2 and c2. Then the triangle with sides a, b, c has to be:
Assume a ≤ b ≤ c,
we have a2 + b2 > c2.
This implies the triangle with sides a, b, c has to be acute-angled.
The question is "△ has sides a2, b2 and c2. Then the triangle with sides a, b, c has to be:"
Choice B is the correct answer.
