Since A =60 degree
And B = C
i.e. it's an equilateral triangle
Means all sides are equal of ∆ABC

Hence AB =BC=20
OPTION:A

Angle B = Angle C = x

60 + 2x = 180
2x = 120
x = 60

Equal angles correspond to equal lengths.

Since BC = 20 and angle A = 60

Then AB = 20

A = 60

B = C.

A + B + C = 180

60 + B + B = 180

B = 60

60-60-60 Triangle.

It means all the legs of the triangle must be equal.

BC = 20

AB = 20.

A is the best answer. Re: In the figure shown, if ∠A = 60°, ∠B = ∠C, and BC = 20, then AB =   [#permalink] 10 Oct 2018, 01:44
