A farmer has determined that a crop of strawberries yields a yearly profit of $1.50 per square yard. If strawberries are planted on a triangular piece of land whose sides are 50 yards, 75 yards, and 100 yards, how much profit, to the nearest hundred dollars, would the farmer expect to make from this piece of land during the next harvest?

  1. Multiply the area of the triangle by $1.50 per square yard.

    There is a formula for the araa of a triangle using the lengths of the three sides. You could also use the law of cosines to get any of the angles of the triangle, and use that angle to get the altitude to use with some base, for the area.
