The area of a right-angled triangle is equal to half the product of its legs:
S = 0.5 * a * b.
In an isosceles right-angled triangle, the legs are equal to each other, which means the area is: S = 0.5 * a ^ 2.
Hence, a ^ 2 = 2 * S = 2 * 18 = 36;
The legs of this triangle are equal: a = √36 = 6 cm.
By the Pythagorean theorem, the sum of the squares of the legs is equal to the square of the hypotenuse: a ^ 2 + b ^ 2 = c ^ 2.
For an isosceles right triangle: a ^ 2 + a ^ 2 = c ^ 2;
Hence, the hypotenuse is equal to: c = √ (6 ^ 2 + 6 ^ 2) = √ (36 + 36) = 6√2 ≈ 8.49 cm.
