Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ooops its 1/2 (2x) sqrt 3 x or simpy sqrt3 * x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. A specialty formula of sorts for finding the area of an equilateral triangle is, in words, the following: side squared times square root of 3 all over 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In this case,[ (2x)^2 (√ 3 )] / =[ 4 x ^ 2 (√ 3 )] / 4 = x ^ 2 (√ 3 )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Area of an equilateral triangle is given by: \[\sqrt{3}/4*x ^{2}\] Where x^2 is the side. In this case, Side=2x So the formula will be: \[\sqrt{3}/4*(2x)^{2}\] Or, that is same as: \[\sqrt{3}/4*4x ^{2}\] 4 and 4 get cancelled from the numerator and denominator, so we are left with: \[\sqrt{3}x ^{2}\] This is the final answer.
