## Answers ( )

Step-by-step explanation:h² = b² + p² b= 12cm , h = 13 cm

p² = h² – b²

## p²= 13² – 12²

## p² = 169 – 144

## p² = 25

## p = √25 = 5 ——-Ans

Answer:5cm

Step-by-step explanation:Let the height of the triangle be x.

=> x² + 12² = 13²

=> x² + 144 = 169

=> x² = 169-144

= 25

=> x × x= 25

=> x=5
