# 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 , 1 , and 7 , respectively. What is the rectangle's area?

104.767 sq. units

#### Explanation:

let,
value of B = $\sqrt{{15}^{2} - 1}$
=$\sqrt{224}$
now,
area of rectangle =$l \cdot b$
=$7 \cdot \sqrt{224}$
= 104.767 sq. units
