In a right triangle, the longer leg and the hypotenuse have consecutive integer lengths whose sum is 121 inches. In inches, what is the perimeter of the triangle?

60 + 61 = 121

Use Pythagorean theorem to calculate the other side length:

61^2 = 60^2 + s^2
    Solve for 's'       Then add to 121 for perimeter
