What will be the area of the square made from the same ropeAnswer by stanbon(60771)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A triangle is made from a rope. The sides of the triangle are 25 cm, 11 cm and 31 cm. What will be the area of the square made from the same rope --------------- The longest "side" must be the hypotenuse. So the legs are 25 and 11 --- Area = (1/2)*11*25 = 137.5 sq. cm. ================================== The length of the rope = 11+31+25 = 67 cm --- Divide the length by 4 to find the length of a side of a square made with the rope. side = 67/4 -- Then area of the square would be (67/4)^2 = 280.56 sq. cm ============================================================ Cheers, Stan H. =============
