    The radius of the circle inscribed in the triangle:

    r = (triangle area)/k where k = (a + b + c)/2

    r = SQR[k(k - a)(k - b)(k - c)]/k

    k = (80 + 100 + 140)/2 = 160

    r = SQR[160(80)(60)(20)]/160 = 3919.2/160 = 24.49cm

    Which of the three angles are inscribed? We need a picture.

    Your book is clearly wrong as you don't measure a radius in square units. You're looking up the answer to the wrong question.
