# 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 14 , 3 , and 24 , respectively. What is the rectangle's area?

$= 328.2$

#### Explanation:

Hypotenuse $A = 14$;$C = 3$
So in aright angled triangle Side $B = \sqrt{{14}^{2} - {3}^{2}}$
or
B=sqrt(196-9
$= \sqrt{187}$
$= 13.67$
So Area of the rectangle=$24$ x $13.67$ $= 328.2$
