In Exercises 9 to 18, find the areas of the figures shown or described.A right triangle has one leg measuring 20 in. and a hypotenuse measuring 29 in.

To determine

To find:

The area of a right triangle that has one leg measuring 20 in. and a hypotenuse measuring 29 in.

Explanation

1) Formula:

The area of right triangle is given by,

A=12ab unit2.

Where a and b are the lengths of the sides of the right triangle.

2) Calculation:

Given,

Length of one leg of a right triangle (a)=20 in.

Length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle =29 in.

Let “b” be the length of the another leg of a right triangle.

By the Pythagorean theorem,

a2+b2=(hyponenuse)2

(20)2+b2=(29)2

400+b2=841

Add (400) on both sides,

400+b2+(<
