Dear Student

Yes but there are two sides making right angle. so side in front of bigger angle is more than the other one or side before the smallest angle is the shortest.

 

All the best.

In a right angled triangle, there are, obviously, 2 sides in the angle. Therfore, any 1 of these 2 sides can be the shortest side. The hypotenuse is completely out of question as we know that it is the longest. So, the conclusion is that either 1 of the sides in the right angle has to be the smallest side.

Please approve!!!

There are two sides perpendicular to each other in a right angled triangle. Out of these two sides any one can be shorter than the other. However it is not possible to say as there are two perpendicular sides They can also be called right angled sides.But they are two.So it cant be said right angled side is the shortest side.

no u cant say like that...

because the base is also the side which contains the right angle....

the base nd perpendicular are at right angles....

so it is better if specifically the perpendicular side is always mentioned...
