So you all think the answer is 60?
anonymous
  • anonymous
saso, explain your thinking ;-)
sasogeek
  • sasogeek
lol well here's how i arrived at 60. 1/6 of 2160 = 360 and for some reason i divided by 6 and had 60. i'm trying to figure out why i divided by 6 but nothing is coming, maybe my brain was thinking ahead of me... ffm you might want to explain this mathematically...

  • anonymous
mathematically ? I can only guess :P
sasogeek
  • sasogeek
well 1/6 of 2160 is 360 and 1/6 of 360 is 60.... i'm not sure this is linked but well it's what i can think of :/ there should be something my brain did... i hate it when i get something right and idk how i got it.... sigh

anonymous
  • anonymous
well ?
sasogeek
  • sasogeek
how is it 60...?
myininaya
  • myininaya
how about you guys assume they are right triangles \[A=\frac{1}{2}bh=2160 => \frac{1}{2}(6b_1)(6h_1)=2160 => \frac{1}{2}b_1h_1=60\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
area of the triangle is \( \frac12 \times \)base \(\times \) altitude
myininaya
  • myininaya
or i mean you don't have to assume right triangles lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
Lol, I knew it :D this is really easy as pie :D
myininaya
  • myininaya
more like cake
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol yeah chocolate cake :D
