    I used the Pythagorean Theorem to find the lengths of the long and short sides then I just used the perimeter formula to add it all together. 24 squared - 7 squared = side1 576 - 49 = side 1 square root 527 = side 1 side1 = 22.96 7 squared + 4 squared = side2 49 + 16 = side2 square root 65 = side2 side 2 =8.06 (22.96)2 + (8.06)2 = perimeter 45.92 + 16.12 = 62.04 cm this is my work @tkhunny

    Why would there ever be subtraction. You are finding the hypotenuse. The Right Angles are in the middle.

    okay I got 66.12 cm 24 squared + 7 squared = side1 576 + 49 = side 1 square root 625 = side 1 side1 = 25 7 squared + 4 squared = side2 49 + 16 = side2 square root 65 = side2 side 2 =8.06 (25)2 + (8.06)2 = perimeter 50 + 16.12 = 66.12 cm
