given that tshe sides are a,a+d,a+2d

let a+2d be the side opposite to the hypotenuse

let the angles be p,90-p,90

we apply sine rule

a/sin(p)= a+d/sin(90-p)=a+2d/sin90

a/sin(p)=a+2d      ,        a+d/sin(90-p)=a+2d   {sin(90-p)=cosp}       

sin(p)=a/a+2d         ,     cos(p)=a+d/a+2d

we  know that sin^2(p)+cos^2(p)=1

(a/a+2d)^2+(a+d/a+2d)^2=1

solving this we get

(a+d)^2+(a)62=(a+2d)^2

a^2+d^2+2.a.d=a^2+4.d^2+4.a.d

0=a^2-2.a.d-3.d^2

its quadratic equation in a

here the roots fot a is 3d

a=3d

a/d=1:3

answer is (c) i.e. 3:1

Solution: Applying Pythagoras Theorem,

we get, (a+2d)2=a2+(a+d)2

=> a2+4d2+4ad=a2+a2+d2+2ad

=> 3d2+2ad-a2=0

=> (d+a)(3d-a)=0

neglecting (d+a)=0, by solving for (3d-a)=0, we get a:d=3:1
