# Construction of a right triangle with a side and hypotenuse

Right angle is one of the angles of the triangle the and assimilating other parameters that are required to complete construction. Construction of a triangle based on RH congruence rule.

### Objectives

To construct a right angled triangle with a side and hypotenuse

### Prerequisites/Instructions, prior preparations, if any

Prior understanding of point, lines and angles, elements of triangle, properties of triangle

### Process (How to do the activity)

• To construct a right triangle what parameters are required.
• How many angles and sides need to be known. How many right angles can be in a triangle?
• What is side opposite to right triangle called? Is this parameter required to construct a right angled triangle?
• Can a right triangle be constructed knowing two adjacent sides of a right triangle that are the arms of the right angle.

Evaluation at the end of the activity

• What is the minimum value of the hypotenuse required to make the triangle
