Inscribed circle

XYZ is right triangle with right angle at the vertex X that has inscribed circle with a radius 5 cm. Determine area of the triangle XYZ if XZ = 14 cm.

Correct answer:

S =  157.5 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

r=5 y=14 s=(x+y+z)/2 x2=y2+z2 S=sr S=zy/2 zy/2=(z+y+z2+y2)/(2r)  z=2 (y rr2)/(y2 r)=2 (14 552)/(142 5)=452=22.5 x=y2+z2=142+22.52=532=26.5 S=z y/2=22.5 14/2=157.5 cm2
