 Question 253407: i have two questions that i really need help with, help would be very appreciated. 1. A parcel of land is in the shape of an isosceles triangle. the base had a length of 673 feet and the two equal legs meet an angle of 43 degrees. Find, to the nearest square foot, the area of the parcel of land. i know that area equals one half base times height but i have no idea how to figure out the height i dont know if i should cut the triangle in half or what. 2. The triangle top of a table has two sides of 14 inches and 16 inches and the angle between the sides is 30 degrees. Find the area of the tabletop, in square inches. i drew i diagram and have attepmted several ways but none of the answers makes sense should i use sohcahtoa i desperatley need help.
