The answer should lie between d/12 and 5d/12

So the answer is E

The length of two sides of a right triangle are d/3 and d/4, where d > 0. If one of these sides is the hypotenuse, what is the length of the third side of the triangle?


A. 5d/12

B. \(\frac{d}{\sqrt{7}}\)

C. d/5

D. d/12

E. \(\frac{d\sqrt{7}}{12}\)


hypotensue would be d/3 ; as it would be the max value

so A^2 + d^2/16 = d^2/9
A^2= ((16-9) * d^2)/ 144

or say A = d sqrt 7/12
IMO E
