# Is triangle

Is triangle ABC with sides a, b and c acute angled?

1) Triangle with sides a^2,b^2, and c^2 has an area of 140 sq cms.

2) Median AD to side BC is equal to altitude AE to side BC.

How to solve questions like these?

Hi Riya,

What is the source of this question? It is very poorly worded question with a lot of ambiguities. I would be worried if you are practicing from these resources.

The question does not even tell us which side out of a,b and c is the greatest. For an acute angled triangle if a, b and c are the 3 sides of the triangle and a is the largest side then the triangle is an acute if a^2 < b^2 + c^2. This is the property the question is trying to test but in a very bad way.
