Solution

Let the common ratio between the sides of the given triangle be x.

Therefore, the side of the triangle will be 12x, 17x, and 25x.

Perimeter of this triangle = 540 cm

12x + 17x + 25x = 540 cm

54x = 540 cm

x = 10 cm

Sides of the triangle will be 120 cm, 170 cm, and 250 cm.

`s="perimeter of triangle"/2=540/2=270cm`

By Heron's formula,

`"Area of triangle "=sqrt(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c))`

                          `=[sqrt(270(270-120)(270-170)(270-250))]cm^2`

                          `=[sqrt(270xx150xx100xx20)]cm^2`

                           = 9000 cm2

Therefore, the area of this triangle is 9000 cm2.
