Answer :

In ΔABC, we have A = 90°.


Using Pythagoras theorem, which states the square of hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides,


BC2 = AB2 + AC2


BC2 = 52 + 122


BC2 = 25 + 144


BC2 = 169



We know,



As ΔABC is right-angled with A = 90°, we have base = AC and height = AB




Area of ΔABC = 30 cm2


But, it is given that AD BC. So area of ΔABC can also be expressed in terms of AD and BC.


Here, we have base = BC and height = AD.



We already found Area of ΔABC = 30 cm2



13 × AD = 60



Thus, length of AD is 4.615 cm.
