Is the area of equilateral triangle A greater than the area of square B ?

(1) The product of the length of a side of the square and the length of a side of the triangle is 120.

(2) The ratio of the length of a side of the square to the length of a side of the triangle is 5 to 6.

Pls explain the solution.

(1) let the side of sq. be 2 and side of triangle be 60

then triangle>square

let the side of sq. be 60 and side of triangle be 2

then square>triangle.

Not suff...

(2) Side of square=5/6*Side of triangle------>0.8(side of triangle)

area of triangle=sq.root3/4*((side of triangle)^2----->0.4*((side of triangle)^2

and area of square= (0.8(side of triangle))^2=0.64*((side of triangle)^2

then square area> triangle area

Suff...
