Answer:30cm²

Step-by-step explanation:length of hypotenuse = h = 13cm

length of a side = a = 5cm

let length of the other side = xcm

now using pythagoras theorem, we get

x² + 5² = 13²

x² + 25 = 169

x² = 169 – 25

x² = 144

x = 12cm

area of right angled triangle = 1/2 x (ab)

where a,b are sides making right angle

area of triangle = 5×12 ÷ 2

area of triangle = 30cm²

Answer:30cm²

Step-by-step explanation:a Leg

5

cm

c Hypotenuse

13

cm

Using the formulas

A=ab

2

c=a2+b2

Solving forA

A=1

2ac2﹣a2=1

2·5·132﹣52=30cm²
