oh ok sorry :(
nope :)
it's all good :) i believe you're fairly new here so just learn how things work around here, you'll get used to it :)
So you all think the answer is 60?
saso, explain your thinking ;-)
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...
mathematically ? I can only guess :P
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
as long as it is right thats al i care about haha thanks
well you should be concerned how the right answer was arrived at. if you should meet a similar question next time, i may not be there to help you
May be she is better off guessing? :P
ffm... -_-
haha saso :)
Did you guys get it?
anybody here?
no... :/
lol, after I give you the answer, you guys will laugh :D
I think Myin got it, she is just being silent
well ?
how is it 60...?
how about you guys assume they are right triangles \[A=\frac{1}{2}bh=2160 => \frac{1}{2}(6b_1)(6h_1)=2160 => \frac{1}{2}b_1h_1=60\]
area of the triangle is \( \frac12 \times \)base \(\times \) altitude
or i mean you don't have to assume right triangles lol
Lol, I knew it :D this is really easy as pie :D
more like cake
lol yeah chocolate cake :D
so how come i tend to get the answer right yet idk how i even got there.... i know i didn't guess for sure... but this is weird
go answer my new question :)
