The side of a right angled triangle containing the right angle are 4x cm and (2x-1) cm. If the area of the triangle is 30 cm2. calculate the length of its sides.

Let the base of the triangle be 4x cm

and perpendicular of the triangle be (2x – 1) cm.

Given, area of triangle = 30 cm2

We know that,

Area of triangle = × base × perpendicular (or height)

Now, x ≠

x = 3 implies that base of triangle = 4x

= 4 × 3

= 12 cm

and perpendicular of the triangle  = 2x – 1

= 2 × 3 – 1

= 5 cm
