ABC is an isosceles triangle with AC = BC.
Question.

$\mathrm{ABC}$ is an isosceles triangle with $\mathrm{AC}=\mathrm{BC}$. If $\mathrm{AB}^{2}=2 \mathrm{AC}^{2}$, prove that $\mathrm{ABC}$ is a right triangle.


Solution:



$\mathrm{As}, \mathrm{AB}^{2}=2 \mathrm{AC}^{2}$

$\mathrm{AB}^{2}=\mathrm{AC}^{2}+\mathrm{AC}^{2}$

$=\mathrm{AC}^{2}+\mathrm{BC}^{2} \quad[\because \mathrm{AC}=\mathrm{BC}]$

As it satisfy the pythagoran triplet

So, $\triangle \mathrm{ABC}$ is right triangle, right angled at $\angle \mathrm{C}$.
