@angelicapad All sides are equal for an equilateral triangle, altitude for an equilateral triangle is also the median. So altitude will the half the side. See the diagramdw:1352702635737:dw all sides are equal let, them be a and we have the altitude as \(7\sqrt 3\) In triangle ABD AB=a AD=\(7\sqrt 3\) BD=a/2 ABD is a right triangle, can you find a now?
