    We know that circumradius, R = half of hypotenuse.
    ∴ Hypotenuse H = 25 cm.
    Also, inradius  where a and b are the perpendicular sides of the right angled triangle.

    ⇒ a + b = 31. ....(1)
    Also, a+ b2 = H2  
    ⇒ a2 + b2 = 625 .....(2)
    Squaring (1) and subtracting (2) from it, we get:
    a2 + b2 + 2ab - a- b2 = 961 - 625
    ⇒ 2ab = 336
    ab = 168
    Area of a right angled triangle = ab/2 = 168/2 = 84 sq. cms
