Find the area of an equilateral triangle (regular 3-gon) with the given measurement.

6-inch side.

A = sq. in.

  • math - ,

    Draw a straight line from the mid point of one side to the opposite vertex.

    Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of this line. Let b = this line (the height).

    a^2 + b^2 = c^2
    3^2 + b^2 = 6^2
    9 + b^2 = 36
    b^2 = 27
    b = 5.2

    Now use this formula to find the area of this triangle.

    A = 1/2bh
