# How do you solve a right triangle with side a = 400 feet and side b = 900 feet?

Apr 26, 2018

check the explanation below.

#### Explanation:

Its Area $= \frac{a b}{2}$

$= \frac{400 \times 900}{2} = 180000 f {t}^{2}$

It's hypotenuse $= \sqrt{{a}^{2} + {b}^{2}}$

$= \sqrt{{400}^{2} + {900}^{2}} = 984.885 f t$

It's perimeter $= a + b +$ hypotenuse length

$= 2284.88 f t$
