Answer:

Area of the triangle #= 24" "#square units

Explanation:

By inspection the #90^@# angle is at (0, 0) then one side to the right along x-axis #=6" "#units. Another side from the origin (0,0) going up #=8" "#units.
Therefore, altitude #=8#
and base #=6#

#Area=1/2bh#
#Area=1/2*6*8#
#Area=24#

God bless....I hope the explanation is useful.

Answer:

The Perimeter #P=24" "#units

Explanation:

The hypotenuse #c# of the right triangle is
#c=sqrt(6^2+8^2)=sqrt(36+64)=sqrt(100)=10" "#

Perimeter #P=a+b+c=6+8+10=24 " "#units

God bless...I hope the explanation is useful.
