  1. A very confusing question.

    Are the triangles right-angled?
    "The slope side of triangle A is double the slope of B"
    ---> a triangle has 3 sides, what does "slope side" mean? the slope of which side?
    What is triangle A and what is triangle B.

  3. If the length of the two triangles are x and y, then

    h/x = sinθ
    h/y = sin2θ

    x/y = sin2θ/sinθ = 2cosθ
    or

    2(h/x)√(1-(h/x)^2) = h/y

    Not sure just where you want to go with this.
