If the perimeter is 12 one side can't be 20 leathcheann.

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.
