I have the length of the triangle=2x and the width=x...

so would the equation be 2x(x)=32

OR NO?

Assume the "length" is the height measured from some side we will call the "base" with width x. The height is in this case 2x. The area is

(1/2) x*2x = x^2 = 32

Therefore

x = sqrt 32 = 5.657 and

2x = 11.314
