  • question_answer The perimeter of a right triangle is 60 cm. Its hypotenuse is 25 cm. Find the area of the triangle.


    Given, the perimeter of right triangle \[=60\text{ }cm\]
    and hypotenuse \[=25\text{ }cm\]
    \[\therefore AB+BC+CA=60\text{ }cm\]
    \[\therefore AB+BC=35\]                                                            ?(i)
    Now, by pythagoras theorem,
    \[\therefore A{{B}^{2}}+B{{C}^{2}}=625\]                                                   ?(ii)
    we, know that, \[{{(a+b)}^{2}}={{a}^{2}}+{{b}^{2}}+2ab\]
    then,               \[{{(AB+BC)}^{2}}\text{=(}AB{{)}^{2}}+{{(BC)}^{2}}+2AB.BC\]
    \[\therefore 2AB.BC=1225-625\]
    \[\therefore AB.BC=300\]
    \[\therefore \]      Area of \[\Delta \text{ }ABC=\frac{1}{2}~\times AB\times BC\]
                            \[=\frac{1}{2}\times 300=150\,\,c{{m}^{2}}\]
