    Answer:

    600 cm²

    Step-by-step explanation:

    So we know that the perimeter is 120 cm and the lengths of the sides are in the ratio 3:4:5. So that means that each side is 3x, 4x and 5x (taking one unit as x). So,

    3x + 4x + 5x = 120cm

    12x = 120 cm

    x = 10cm

    So each side is:

    3x = 3 (10) = 30cm

    4x = 4 (10) = 40cm

    5x = 5 (10) = 50cm

    Using pythagoras theorem, we can say that this triangle is a right angled triangle.

    Using the 40 cm side as base, area will be:

    1/2 x 40cm x 30cm (Since 30 cm will be the height)

    =20cm x 30cm

    600 cm²

    So your answer is 600cm²
