 Question 630780: in a 45 degree - 45 degree-90 degree triangle, what would be the length of the other two sides if the the longest side is 10? Click here to see answer by reviewermath(524)

 Question 631368: Please help me solve this equation: Triangle ABC is isosceles with AC = BC. If AC = 3x + 8, BC = 5x - 4, and AB = 2x + 4, find the perimeter of the triangle. I have tried solving this by myself already by solving for x and then substituting it, but the answers I get are not equal. It says that AC and BC are supposed to be congruent, but my answers are very far from each other. However, I think I got the formula for this correctly. Since it isn't a regular polygon, the formula for the perimeter is the two sides + the base, right? Please correct me if I'm wrong. Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9135)

 Question 635190: I was asked to calculate the area of a rhombus split into two triangles. The triangles were equilateral and it gave me two sides that were both 6. I understand I can use Heron's formula for this, but I came across a part in this certain problem I didn't understand. So, first I do S=one-half (6+6+6). It is 9. Then, you do s(9-6)(9-6)(9-6) and square it. They put the answer as 9 and a squared 3 where its under the little house thing. How did they get from 9(3)(3)(3)squared to that?!
