Architect Frank Lloyd Wright included a pool shaped like a right triangle in his design of Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. The sides of the pool that represent the legs measure 41 ft and 40 ft. Calculate the perimeter of the pool. Round the answer to the nearest foot. A. 136 ft B. 138 ft C. 140 ft D. 144 ft
The sides of the pool that represent the legs measure 41 ft and 40 ft. The perimeter of the pool is B. 138 ft First, we need to calculate the third side of the right triangle, the third side = sqrt (41^2 + 40^2) = 57 feet the perimeter of the pool = 40 + 41 + 57 = 138 feet.

First, we need to calculate the third side of the right triangle,
the third side = sqrt (41^2 + 40^2) = 57 feet
the perimeter of the pool = 40 + 41 + 57 = 138 feet.
