Right 24

The right isosceles triangle has an altitude x drawn from the right angle to the hypotenuse dividing it into two unequal segments. The length of one segment is 5 cm. What is the area of the triangle? Thank you.

Correct answer:

S = fr((5+sqrt(x/5))*x,2)

Step-by-step explanation:

c1=5 cm  h= x c2 = h/c1 = x/5  c = c1+c2   S = 2c h S=2(5+x/5) x
