Now I did one very similar to this for you a couple of hours ago. You try.

i think P = a + b + c right?
and A = 1/2bh right?
math - Damon, Sunday, July 3, 2011 at 3:31pm
yes and c = 52 = sqrt (a^2+b^2)
math - Damon, Sunday, July 3, 2011 at 3:33pm
(because the longest side is the hypotenuse, not one of the legs)

im still a little confused with this problem....
math - jenna, Monday, July 4, 2011 at 4:48pm
i don't think im getting this problem...would it be 20 * 52 = 1040 mm?
PLEASE ASSIST :(
