Is ABC a right triangle?

(1) The angles of ABC are in the ratio 1 : 2 : 3. Since the sum of the angles in a triangle is 180°, then from this statement we have that x + 2x + 3x = 180. We can find all the angles, thus answer whether the triangle is right angled. Sufficient.

(2) One of the angles of ABC equals the sum of the other two angles. Say that angle is y°, then y + y = 180° --> y = 90°. Sufficient.

Answer: D.

St1. 1+2+3=6, so we get 30:60:90. Suff

St2. x+y+(x+y)=180 => 2(x+y)=180=>x+y=90. Suff

Its a very simple question..
Given : a triangle ABC
DS: Is ABC a right triangle? i.e any one of the angle is 90` or not

Statement 1 : Lets say A:B:C :: 1:2:3 (we can assume any angles)
So, x+2x+3x = 180
6x = 180
x = 30
So, the angles are 30, 60, 90
ABC is a right angled triangle
SUFFICIENT


Statement 2: Lets say A= B+C (we can assume any angles)
Also A+B+C = 180
A+A = 180
A = 90
ABC is a right angles triangle
SUFFICIENT

Answer D
