To find the area of a right triangle, you can use the formula: Area = (base × height) / 2.

In this case, the legs of the right triangle are 10 inches and 4 inches. You can choose either leg as the base and the other leg as the height. Let's choose the legs as follows:

Base = 4 inches Height = 10 inches

Area = (4 × 10) / 2 Area = 40 / 2 Area = 20 square inches

So, the area of the triangle is 20 square inches.
