let the side be 2x now the height will form a right angled triangle with half the base and one side so height ^2 + 1/2 base ^2 = side ^2 so 41.2^2 + x^2 = 4x^2 3x^2 = 1697.44 x^2 = 565.81 x = 23.78 2x = 47.57 the side has length 47.57

the area = 1/2 *xy * sin theta = 1/2 * 0.86 * 47.57*47.57 =980 cm^2
