In triangle ABC, AB = BC = 17 and AC = 16. Find the inradius of triangle ABC.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks in advance!

You can use the formula r = K/s for the inradius to get r = 12/5.

Actually you forgot to multiply by two(but good job)

 

\(r = \frac{[ABC]}{s} = \frac{120}{(17+17+16)/2} = \boxed{\frac{24}{5}}.\)

I think that's the answer?
