RT sides

Find the sides of a rectangular triangle if legs a + b = 17cm and the radius of the written circle ρ = 2cm.

Result

c =  13 cm
a =  12 cm
b =  5 cm

Solution:

a+b=17 r=2 cm  r=a+bc2  a+b=c+2r  c=172 r=172 2=13 cma+b=17 \ \\ r=2 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ r=\dfrac{ a+b-c }{ 2 } \ \\ \ \\ a+b=c+2r \ \\ \ \\ c=17 - 2 \cdot \ r=17 - 2 \cdot \ 2=13 \ \text{cm}
