Answer

  1. The lengths of the 2 legs of the right triangle is 24 and 32, which can be factorized to

    24 = 8\times3

    32=8\times4

    So the length of the sides of this triangle are the multiples of the famous right triangle with side in Pythagorean Triplet 3-4-5.

    So the length of the hypotenuse of the right triangle is

    8\times5 = 40

    So C is the correct option
