find the perimeter and area of a right triangle if the shortest side is 9 inches and the longest side is 41 inches

  • Math -

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    9^2 + b^2 = 41^2

    81 + b^2 = 1,681

    b^2 = 1,600

    b = 40

    The perimeter is the sum of the three sides.

    Area = 1/2 base times height
