A right triangle has sides A, B, and C. Side A is the hypotenuse and side B is also a side of a rectangle. Sides A, C, and the side of the rectangle adjacent to side B have lengths of #15 #, #8 #, and #7 #, respectively. What is the rectangle's area?
Area of the rectangle
We can compute for side
because by Pythagorean Theorem
Compute now for the area of the rectangle
God bless....I hope the explanation is useful.
Consider the diagram
Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of
A little confusion! yeah
Remember like this
The square of Hypotenuse of a right triangle equals the sum of the squares of the other two sides
Now we need to find the area of the rectangle
Area of rectangle
