Solution


Given:
    • A triangle with a base of 10 ft has the same area as a circle with radius 3 ft

To find:
    • The height of the triangle

Approach and Working:
If we assume the height of the triangle as h, then
    • Area of the triangle = \(½ * 10 * h = 5h\)

Radius of the circle is 3
    • Area of the circle = \(π * 3^2 = 9π\)

As the area of the triangle is same as the area of the circle, we can say
    • 5h = 9π
    Or, h = 9π/5

Hence, the correct answer is option A.

Answer: A
