**Ms. Sue**, Wednesday, June 27, 2012 at 8:00pmFirst, we need to determine the length of the third side by using the Pythagorean Theorem.

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

20^2 + b^2 = 52^2

400 + b^2 = 2704

b^2 = 2304

b = 48

The perimeter is the sum of the three sides.

20 + 48 + 52 = P

The area is found by using this formula:

A = 1/2 * b * h

A = (1/2) * 20 * 48

A = ________sq. mm.
