The area of a triangle = 1/2*b*h
b = 2x
h = x
Area = 48
Can you solve it now?
No, unfortunately I dont get it! If you can please show me with steps that would be very helpful.
In any right triangle with leg of lengths its area is .
In your triangle we know that thus its area is just .
We also know that where is the length of the hypotenuse.
You need to finish it off.
