Problem
A right triangle has perimeter , and the area of a circle inscribed in the triangle is . Let A be the area of the triangle. Compute .
Solution
We know the perimeter and area of incircle, so we can find the semiperimeter of the triangle and radius of the incircle and plug the values into the area formula
The semiperimeter of the triangle is The radius of the incircle is . That means the area of the triangle is
By noting that (or by using a calculator), the value is around so .
