Hi guys,

Question: The lengths of the sides of a right angled triangle are $\displaystyle (2x+1)$ cm, $\displaystyle 6x$cm and $\displaystyle (5x+3)$ cm. Calculate the value of x and hence find the area of the triangle

I tried using Pythagoras Theorem but if I were to expand the algebra given, the answers would be completely different? How should I go around to solve it?

Thanks
