the area of a triangle is 338 square yards. the height of the triangle is four times its base find the height and base of the triangle

  • geometry -

    let base be x yds
    then height is 4x yds

    area of triangle = base x height/2
    = x(4x)/2 = 2x^2

    but 2x^2 = 338
    x^2 = 169
    x = √169 = 13

    etc.
