a shape of a right triangle... 15ft of the perennial border

This answer was rated:

★★★★★

a shape of a right triangle... 15ft of the perennial border forms the hypotenuse of the triangle and one leg is 3ft longer than the other leg. whats the length of the legs?

It specifically says that 15 feet is the hypotenuse -- it talks about the "perennial" border, *not* the perimeter. Based on the hundreds of math 117 week 7 mathlab checkpoints I have seen (including the figure itself), this is the case. Therefore the legs are 9 and 12 feet. (because 9^2 + 12^2 = 15^2) The answers are 9, 12.
