find the perimeter and area of a right triangle if the shortest side is 20m and the longest side is 29m. Include correct units with your solution.

  • geometry - ,

    since the hypotenuse is the longest side, the other leg, of length x can be found by:

    20^2 + x^2 = 29^2
    x = 21

    so, the perimeter is 20+21+29 = 70
    the area is 20*21/2 = 210
