Area of RT

In the right triangle has orthogonal projections of legs to the hypotenuse lengths 15 cm and 9 cm. Determine the area of ​​this triangle.

Correct answer:

S =  139.4 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

p=15 cm q=9 cm  c=p+q=15+9=24 cm h=p q=15 9=3 15 cm11.619 cm  S=c h2=24 11.6192=36 15=139.4 cm2
