 Question 21412: This is a geometry question, from my algebra class, we are working on quadatric equations. Iam so confused. I know the formula for area of a triangle. A = 1/2 b x h. But can't figure out how to come up with an equation to figure out how to do this. The question: The base of a triangle is 4 feet less than 3 times the height, and the area is 16 square feet. Find the dimensions of the triangle (Note: need to set up an equation to sove the problem) Please help!! Thank you. Click here to see answer by josmiceli(9649)

 Question 26340: The triangle A (lower left hand corner of the triangle) B (lower right hand corner) C (top of triangle) =ABC, is an equilateral triangle where each side of the triangle is 6. What is the height of h if h is the dotted vertical line down the center? I am having a hard time trying to copy and paste the triangle with my question. Hopefully, you can imagine what I am trying to say. The picture looks like an equilateral triangle w/ a dotted vertical line down the middle. The three sides of the triangle is 6 and the three points of the triangle is ABC. Thanks, Kristin Click here to see answer by venugopalramana(3286)
