Question:

Fill in the blanks to make the following statements true.

(i) In a right triangle the hypotenuse is the ___ side.

(ii) The sum of three altitudes of a triangle is ___ than its perimeter.

(iii) The sum of any two sides of a triangle is ___ than the third side.

(iv) If two angles of a triangle are unequal, then the smaller angle has the ___ side opposite to it.

(v) Difference of any two sides of a triangle is ___ than the third side.

(vi) If two sides of a triangle are unequal, then the larger side has ___ angle opposite to it.

Solution:

(i) In a right triangle the hypotenuse is the largest side

Reason: Since a triangle can have only one right angle, other two angles must be less than 90

The right angle is the largest angle.

Hypotenuse is the largest side.

(ii) The sum of three altitudes of a triangle is less than its perimeter.

(iii) The sum of any two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side.

(iv) If two angles of a triangle are unequal, then the smaller angle has the smaller side opposite to it.

(v) Difference of any two sides of a triangle is less than the third side.

(vi) If two sides of a triangle are unequal, then the larger side has greater angle opposite to it.
