Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what about using the area rule

experimentX

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2probably @hartnn method would work out too ... since they are all independent equations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"what about using the area rule" U just want to get rid of the 90 bit and then you can get rid of theta

experimentX

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2still that's quite a bit of algebra since they are all non linear equations ... let's try something better.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1350210434675:dw x+2y = 7 ..(1) y^2 + (x+y)^2 = 81 ..(2) hope that does it..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correction : x+2y = 10

shubhamsrg

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0solving shouldnt be much problem since from (1) , x+y = 10y and we plug that directly in (2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for that i had given the solution above.. x+2y = 10 ..(1) y^2 + (x+y)^2 = 81 ..(2) from (1), x+y = 10y and we plug this in (2) to solve for y, and x and ultimately area..
