Can u please check your question again and provide the correct details !!
The question is very much right.
Sides are 15, 20, 25. You can see that they form right angled triangle and their perimeter is 60.

Solution :
Please Rephrase the question , and check instead of hypotenuse value of base or altitude should be given.
perimeter = 60 cm  (given)
hypotenuse = 25 cm  (given)
We know that perimeter of right angled triangle = base+altitude +hypotenuse
60 = base +  altitude + 25
60 - 25 = base + altitude
35 = base + altitude
or base + altitude = 35
let the base = x
therefore altitude = 35 -x
Area of a right angled triangle = 1/2(x * (35 - x))
= 1/2 (35x - x²)
=35x/2 - x²/2

Check the question again and let me know !! I will edit my answer then..

Hope this helps You!!!

Thank You!!

Cheers!!!
Sides 15,20
please provide the solution ,
Ok then
Sorry my solution was inappropriate !!!
