Please, find length and width and simplify. Should I convert the yards?

:-)

**Damon**, Sunday, April 29, 2012 at 9:03amI guess yd is yd^2, square yards, and one of your unknowns is the base and one is the altitude. Otherwise I do not know how to proceed. Length and width of a triangle does not mean anything.

if my guess is correct then

(1/2) b h = 2

b h = 4

but h = 2 b

so

2 b^2 = 4

b = sqrt 2

h = 2 sqrt 2
