Area of triangle = \frac{1}{2}*CD*AC = 50 => CD*AC = 100

Since CD = AC (as they are sides of a square)

CD = AC = 10

Therefore Perimeter = 4*CD = 40 - Answer - C

In the diagram above, triangle CDE is inscribed in square ABCD. If the area of the triangle is 50, what is the perimeter of the square?

Area of triangle CDE = 50,
1/2 * CD * EO = 50 (if we assume point O, which is perpendicular, on CD)
So, CD * EO = 100
CD = 10 and EO = 10 as EO is length of square.
So, length of square = 10 each. So perimeter of square = 40.

Let the side of the square ABCD be x

Area of triangle CDE = 1/2 * CD * AC = x^2/2 = 50
x^2 = 100
x = 10

Perimeter of the square ABCD = 4*10 = 40

IMO C

As ABCD is a square AB=BC=CD=DA=x
Assume a line EF, perpendicular to line CD
Where EF=x
Now area of the triangle 1/2. EF.CD=50
EF.CD=100
x2=100
x=10

So the perimeter of the square is, 4x=40

A. 20
B. 32
C. 40
D. 48
E. 50


The area of the triangle is 1/2 * b * h. in this case, the base and height also = the side of the square
50 = 1/2 (s) (s) --> s = 10 --> perimeter = 40 --> answer is (c)

we just need to use the formula of the trangle . 1/2 base * height . we get side so 4 * side is the answer 40

Option (C)40
Area of triangle
=b×h/2
=CD×CA/2 (height has same length as CA, base is CD)
=CD^2/2 (CA=CD since it's a square)
= 50
CD = sqrt(100) = 10
Perimeter=4×CD=40

\(\triangle CDE = \frac{1}{2}*base*altitude = 50\)
\(or, \frac{1}{2} * a * a = 50,\)
or, a = 10

Therefore, 4a = 40

Answer: C
