Q. 63.7( 7 Votes )

If AOB is a diameter of a circle and C is a point on the circle, then AC2 + BC2 = AB2

Answer :


Let AB be the diameter of the circle with center O and C be any point on circle.

Since, diameter subtends a right angle to the circle,

ACB = 90°

Now, in right angled triangle ACB, by Pythagoras theorem, we have:

(AB)2 = (AC)2 + (AB)2

Thus, the statement is true.
