find the area of a right angled triangle if the radius of its circumcircle is 3 cm and altitude drawn to the hypotenuse is 2cm.
Given : The radius of circumcircle of a triangle is 3 cm and Altitude drawn to the hypotenuse is 2 cm.
We know that if an angle of triangle is 90° then its hypotenuse is the diameter of the circumcircle.
⇒ Hypotenuse = Diameter = 2 × radius = 2 × 3 cm = 6 cm
Now, area of triangle = × base × height
