    Area of Triangle : 1/2 times 9 "correct" ?

    1/2 time base of the triangle times the height of the triangle. Because you are only given the base, you need to find the height.

    And to find the height we use pythag theorem correct?

    So your new base would be 1.5 and the hypo would still be 3, yep

    So the height would be a^2?

    c= 3, b=1.5, and yep a= a

    so when you plug into pythag, you would get that

    add that to the (perimeter of the base x height), which would be (3+3+3)(6)

    Area of Triangle = 1.5√6.75 correct?

    btw, people would write \[\sqrt{6.75} \] as \[ \frac{3 \sqrt{3}}{2}\]

    So it would be 4.5√3 / 2 @phi ?

    generally you don't mix decimals and fractions i.e. 4.5/2 If you have a multiple choice you probably would see the answer as a pure fraction \[ \frac{4}{9}\sqrt{3} \]

    double that for the other triangle now you have 3 faces that all look the same size 3x6 3 faces each 18 = 54 plus the two triangles 8/9 sqrt(3)
