The length of a triangle is twice the width. The area is 2yd^2.
Please, find length and width and simplify. Should I convert the yards?
:)

I 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

I'm searching for the length and the width. I guess I will figure it out, but thank you.
