Hi Vips0000
Can you please expand out this element? I can't follow what you've done here (in either case).
Thanks
Skientist
1: "using area for equilateral trianlge, side of triangle is"area for a equilateral triangle is given by \((\sqrt{3}/4)a^2\) , where a is the side of equilateral triangle.
thus \((\sqrt{3}/4)a^2\) =\(24\sqrt{3}\)
=> side of triangle = a =\(4\sqrt{6}\)
2: "using pythagorean theorem height of triangle is"From picture you can see,
\(height^2 + (base/2)^2 = Side^2\)
base and side are same and equal to a, as defined earlier.
=> \(height^2 = a^2 - (a/2)^2\)
using value of a obtained earlier.
=>height = \(6\sqrt{2}\)
Hope it is clear. You better give me 10 kudos now
