Hi,

I saw a question that asks for the length of the side of a pentagon, given that the area is 60. (I don't have the exact question with me).
I tried breaking up the pentagon into triangles, say, 10 triangles with an area of 6 units each. ie, 1/2 * base * height = 6 ==> b*h = 12 , that still doesn't help me find the length of the side.

Can someone help me solve this please?

Thanks,
Myths
