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
