I am studying for the GMAT, and I have hit a snag. This is the question and answer.
The perimeter of an isosceles right triangle is 16+16 sqr root(2). What is the length of the hypoteneuse?
I know that the ratio of the sides of an isosceles right triangle is Side:Side:Side Sqr Root(2)
However, I was under the impression that the hypoteneuse is always the side that is Side Sqr Root (2)
But the answer to this question is that the hypoteneuse's length is actually 16. How can that be possible?
