    YES

    First, 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.
