If the area of Triangle T, sides 5,12, and 13 equals the area of rectangle R, width 3, then what is the perimeter of rectangle R?
your triangle is right-angled, since
so the area is 30
so rectangle R is length x width = 30
3length = 30
length = 10
so its perimeter is 2(10+3) = 26
Where did you get 3^2 from?
I really don't know, lol, must be senility
of course I meant
5^2 + 12^2 = 13^2
the rest is still correct.
Lol, okay. Thank you very much !
