It is known that ABC is a triangle right angled at B.
We know that,
A + B + C = 180°
If B+C = 90° then A has to be 90°.
Since A is the largest angle of the triangle, the side opposite to it must be the largest.
So, AB is the hypotenuse which will be the largest side of the above rightangled triangle i.e. ΔABC.
