If a side of isosceles triangle is x, then hypotenuse is x sqrt2.

Perimeter of an isosceles traingle= 16 + 16 sqrt2
x + x + x sqrt2 = 16 + 16 sqrt2
2x + x sqrt2 = 16 + 16 sqrt2
x sqrt2 (1+sqrt2) = 16 (1+sqrt2)
x sqrt2 = 16

I did not get your example with meals.
But I will give you mine...also food related...

You are going to have a dessert and you have a selction of 4 chocolate cakes and 3 cheese cakes. You are going to eat 2 types of cake...how many desserts options can you have?
1) you are going to have one chocolate and one cheese cake then you have 4\times 3=12 dessert options
2) there is no limitation you can have 2 chocolate or 2 cheese or one chocolate and one cheese...
then you have 7 types of cake and you can have 7C2=\frac{7!}{5!2!}dessert options...


ok now it's clear, but how can I calculate the following in the exam? 7C2=\frac{7!}{5!2!}

thanks,

thanks,


The following way: \frac{7\times 6\times 5!}{5!\times 2\times 1}=\frac{7\times 6}{2}=21
