Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol 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...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3how about you guys assume they are right triangles \[A=\frac{1}{2}bh=2160 => \frac{1}{2}(6b_1)(6h_1)=2160 => \frac{1}{2}b_1h_1=60\]
