*A right triangle has legs of length 6 and b and a hypotenuse of length c . *

*The perimeter of the triangle is 12. Compute c.*

If the perimeter is 12, and "a" is 6, that means "b" + "c" is 6.

If "b" + "c" is 6, that means the hypotenuse is some value less than 6.

But, the hypotenuse of a right triangle cannot be shorter than one of its legs.

This triangle does not exist.
