    do you know trig? or does this only require pythogoras theorem?

    It should only require Pythagoras theorem. It is merely Geometry.

    But the Sq Rt is what confuses me.

    I tried using the 30-60-90 ratio and i got the answer: 2 times sqrt of 1.5 sq in which is wrong.

    |dw:1346873167383:dw| once you have a then a*2 would be height

    a is 4 i think the height is 8

    SO it would be area= 8 times the sqrt of 3?

    then i think it is just 8*8 the area Something seems odd tho. THe figure is not to scale or i am wrong.

    all you have to do is find height then it is simply 8*h

    a=2*sqrt(3) So h = 2*sqrt(3)*sqrt(3) and A=h*b can you do that?

    The height is √3 correct?
