Q: A right angled triangle with sides a, b and c where a<b<c contains a circle such that the circle just touches all sides of the triangle. The circle has radius of 1cm.

a) show that ab=a+b+c

b) show that a+b=c+2

c)deduce that the area of the triangle is (a+b-1)

any help would be great, thanks.
