- Find the area of the right angled triangle if the radius of its circumcircle is 5 cm and altitude drawn to the hypotenuse is 4 cm.

Dear Student!

Here is the answer to your query.

**Given : **The radius of circumcircle of a triangle is 5 cm and Altitude drawn to the hypotenuse is 4 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 × 5 cm = 10 cm

Now area of triangle = × base × height

Cheers!
