The right triangle

The right triangle ABC has a leg a = 36 cm and an area S = 540 cm2. Calculate the length of the leg b and the median t2 to side b.

Correct answer:

b =  30 cm
t2 =  39 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

a=36 cm S=540 cm2  S=2ab  b=2 S/a=2 540/36=30 cm
t22=a2+(b/2)2 t2=a2+(b/2)2=362+(30/2)2=39 cm
