**Pythagoras Theorem:-**In a right angled triangle, the square of length of hypotenuse is equal to the sum of squares of lengths of other two sides.

Data:- In ΔABC, m∠B=90

To prove:- AC²=AB²+BC²

Proof:-

In ΔABC, m∠B=90.

Let line-segment BD⊥AC

When an altitude is drawn to the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle, then each side of triangle other than the hypotenuse is the Geometric Mean of Hypotenuse and the segment of Hypotenuse adjacent to it.

∴AB²=AD*AC

and BC²=CD*AC

So, AB²+BC²= AD*AC + CD * AC

= AC (AD + CD)

= AC *AC

AB²+BC² = AC²
