Would you know the formula for an Isosceles triangle (non-right angle)?
I've never seen any formula or may be I've never come across it.

Right angle Isosceles triangle - not the formula but you can use a:a:a rt2 (45-45-90) or a:a rt3:2a (30-60-90)

Thanks,
Pawan

length of the two equal sides = a
length of third, unequal side = c

area = (c/4) * SQRT(4a²-c²)
