In ∆ABC, ∠B = 90° , and l(BC) = 21, and l(AB) = 20 

∴ According to Pythagoras’ theorem, 

∴ l(AC)= l(BC)+ l(AB)

∴ l(AC)= 21+ 20

∴ l(AC)= 441 + 400 

∴ l(AC)= 841 

∴ l(AC)= 29

∴ l(AC) = 29 

Perimeter of ∆ABC = l(AB) + l(BC) + l(AC) 

= 20 + 21 + 29 

= 70

∴ The length of hypotenuse AC is 29 units, and the perimeter of ∆ABC is 70 units.
