Answer :

Given: PQR and POQ are right angled triangles.


QPR = 90°


POQ = 90°


OP = 6 cm


OQ = 8 cm


PR = 24 cm


By applying Pythagoras theorem to ΔPOQ, we get,


PQ2 = OP2 + OQ2


PQ2 = 62 + 82


PQ2 = 36 + 64


PQ2 = 100 = 102


PQ = 10 cm


Now, by applying Pythagoras Theorem to ΔPQR, we get,


QR2 = PQ2 + PR2


QR2 = 102 + 242


QR2 = 100 + 576


QR2 = 676 = 262


QR = 26 cm


Thus, QR is 26 cm long.
