The vertices of a right triangle in the first quadrant are (0,n), (0,0) and (k, 0).

Draw a picture that represents the situation described.

If the hypotenuse passes trough the point (5,2), express the area of the triangle in terms ofk.

Please explain how you got your answer, this is the first time I have encountered a problem like this, and my instructor didn't find it necessary to ask if the class had ever seen this problem before.

Thanks!
